Supported Child Contact Centres

Supported contact takes place in a neutral community based venue where there are facilities to enable children to develop and maintain positive relationships with non-resident parents and other family members.

Supported Child Contact Centres are suitable for families when no significant risk to the child or those around the child has been identified.

Supported contact offers

  • A safe and neutral environment
  • Impartiality/confidentiality
  • Several families using the centre at the same time
  • Encouragement for families to develop mutual trust and consider more satisfactory family venues.

Staff and volunteers are available for assistance, but there is no close monitoring or recording of individual contacts/conversations.

Children’s Links runs Supported Child Contact Centres at Lincoln, Grantham, Gainsborough,Skegness and Spalding. We are happy to accept referrals from a wide range of agencies.
