Child Contact Centre
What is a Child Contact Centre?
The Child Contact Centre is a safe, friendly and neutral place where children of separated parents can meet their non-resident parent or family member. The centre aims to help children whose parents have separated and where there is no reasonable alternative way for them to spend time with them. It is a child-friendly environment, with toys, games, books and other facilities available.
Many parents have been given the priceless opportunity to spend time with their children, whom they would not be able to see otherwise. To see the joy of the children at meeting with their non-resident parent is special indeed. The services we offer rely on the generous volunteers who give up their time and energy to see lives being changed.
Become a Volunteer
The success of the centre has meant that demand for the service is increasing as more families are referred to us. The increased demand means that we have more spaces for volunteers, especially more men, so that we can take on more families. Sessions run from 10am to 12pm on alternate Saturdays, and you would volunteer for one Saturday a month.
The Child Contact Centre is run as part of The Vine but welcomes all families and is staffed by volunteers from various places. You can find out more about the history of the Vine here.
