A Child Contact Centre is a safe, friendly and neutral place where children of separated families can spend time with one or both parents, and sometimes other family members.

It is a child-centred environment that puts the need of the children first. In today’s society, 1 in 3 relationships/marriages in the UK end in separation/divorce.

It has been estimated that 100,000 children per year in the UK lose contact with a parent during a family break-up.

Child Contact Centres were set up to facilitate contact between a child and those parents, or significant others, with whom they no longer live. It can be hard for children and parents to keep in touch during this emotionally difficult time.

Research tells us that children benefit from meaningful and safe contact with both parents and this assists them in dealing with the emotional and psychological effects of separation and loss.
