Child Contact Centres

Some 240,000 children are affected by their parent’s separation or divorce every year and more than 100,000 lose contact with one or both parents. Child Contact Centres are a vital service for children all over the UK.

You might need to use a supported Contact Centre, if you and your former partner no longer wish to see each other, if you cannot agree on times and venues for contact to take place or the court may have issued a contact order stating contact to take place at a centre.

Our Contact Centres are a safe & neutral venue for children of separated families to meet with their non-resident parent or other family members. As the most important people in the Centre, children have access to age appropriate toys, games and activities and we aim to provide a warm and friendly atmosphere.

The Centres are run by a team of fully trained staff and volunteers independent from the courts, social services or any statutory agency. We are also a member of the National Association of Child Contact Centres (NACCC) There is nothing to worry about, contact centres are child centred friendly places! We have Centres operating in Lincolnshire at Lincoln, Grantham, Gainsborough, Spalding and Skegness with more to open shortly.

If you would like to use a Contact Centre or if you would like to volunteer please contact us contactcentres@childrenslinks.org.uk 0845 373 0645
