Supported Contact Sessions

Supported Contact takes place in the Centre where there are facilities to enable the children to develop and maintain positive relationships with non-resident parents and other family members. Supported Contact is suitable for families when no significant risk to the child or others around them has been identified. The basic elements of supported contact are as follows;

  • Impartiality.
  • Staff and volunteers are available for assistance but there is no close observation, monitoring or evaluation of individual contacts/conversations.
  • Several families are usual together.
  • Encouragement for families to develop mutual trust and consider more satisfactory family venues.
  • Apart from attendance dates and times, no detailed report will be made to a referrer, CAFCASS, a solicitor or court, unless there is a risk of harm to the child, parent or Centre worker.
  • An acknowledgment that it is to be viewed as a temporary arrangement to be reviewed after an agreed period of time.
  • Children are the responsibility of parents at all time: staff are on hand to offer support or help if needed.

Please note: Supported Contact Sessions are not suitable for any cases involving risk to children or adults.
