What do we do?

The Children’s Contact Service (CCS) is a child safe, child focused service which provides a family friendly facility to help children to maintain or develop a positive, meaningful relationship with the parent or family they do not live with.

The service can facilitate supervised changeovers and supervised contact visits at a safe and neutral venue.
