Child Contact Venues can be helpful when there are safety considerations that need to be explored, or when adults or children need support from staff to help re-establish trust with another person.

We strive to ensure that our child contact venues are child friendly and welcoming and we work in partnership with NACCC to ensure our venues meet the required child contact centre standards. We also put ourselves forward to be inspected by the FJYPB to ensure that we get children's views about our venues.

Subject to risk assessment, contact activities can be centre based or they might take place in the community; allowing for the flexibility to support families in various settings and enabling them to move on in a safe and supported way.

Staff working in our venues support parents to consider future arrangements and adults are be expected to take part in dispute resolution work as part of our child contact activities and work on a contact plan to enable things to move forward.
