How are the visits arranged?
Contact at our Centre takes place by referral. The referral is made to the Centre Co-ordinator, ideally by a solicitor, family mediator, CAFCASS (Children and Family Court Advisory Support Service), a court order, or in the absence of any of these, by self-referral.
Referrals are made by completing a referral form and sending it to the Co-ordinator. If this is your first referral please first read the guidelines for referrers and the rules of the Centre.
To make it easier for the child and the parents, our Co-ordinator will then make an appointment to meet you at the centre, this is called a Pre-visit. Separate pre-visits are arranged for Resident and Visitng parents. This will help you all to be more relaxed on your first visit and allow you to meet some of our volunteers.
Is there a cost?
We ask for a registration fee of £40 per parent, this covers use of the Centre for a year. A further fee of £40 is required annually should the Centre be needed for longer. Generally this is handled via the solicitors where they are involved.
