Contact Centres

Contact Centres provide a safe space where children can see the parents that they don’t live with if there are concerns about the children meeting the parent in the community or at their own home.

The aim is to keep children in touch with parents following separation in a safe environment because parenting shouldn’t end when relationships do.

You can find your local contact centre here.

Child contact centres and services are neutral places where children of separated families can enjoy contact with their non-resident parents and sometimes other family members, in a comfortable and safe environment. Nearly four thousand volunteers and two thousand staff work in these centres and thousands of children use them each year.  They are run by a variety of independent organisations that form the membership of the National Association of Child Contact Centres (NACCC), along with affiliated members such as family lawyers, Cafcass, Cafcass Cymru and the judiciary.
