Helping families to make the next moves is vital for the development of the child. We recognise that it is in the best interest of the child for parenting to continue despite the difficult circumstance.
Our child centre will offer safe, friendly spaces where we will enable families to reconnect and build bridges to foster the welfare of the child. We recognise that parenting doesn’t end even during disputes within the family. We will ensure that our environment is safe and neutral enabling the needs of the child to be above all other considerations.
In accordance with relevant legislation, our duty and candour entails we guarantee to put safeguarding children at the forefront in line with National Association of Child Contact Centres (NACC) minimum standards.
Our vision is to provide a child friendly setting, with games, toys and activities for the children and their families to engage with. The contact will be supervised by qualified, non-judgemental contact supervisors who will support the contact promoting a positive contact experience for the child/young person. We would be able to write professional reports at the end of the contact if needed for court proceedings or for the Local Authorities.
We are a team of professionals from a variety of backgrounds including, foster carer, Social Workers, Nursery Nurses and family support workers who will be able to provide a safe, and therapeutic environment for contact which will be supervised to ensure that the welfare of the child is paramount.
I have decided on this project as contact for birth children and their families is crucial for the child's and young person’s development of identity and understanding who they are. When children are unable to have contact with their family members they become distressed, anxious, worried and concerned. In most cases children In accordance feel abandoned and rejected.
Our charges for the service provided will be £40 an hour . The contact will be supervised by experienced professionals with social work and social care background.
