Child Contact Centre

Our Child Contact Centre offers supported contact in a safe, friendly and neutral place, where children of separated families can spend time with a parent who no longer lives with them.

We provide a fully equipped nursery for younger children, a room for older children and toys and games for all ages. There are nappy changing facilities and a disabled toilet. Estranged parents do not have to meet if they do not wish to.

The Centre is open from 10am to 3pm on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays and from 10am to 1pm on the 2nd & 4th Saturdays of the month with four teams of volunteers each working once a month.

The Centre is an Accredited member of the National Association of Child Contact Centres.

For further information about applying for a place, or about volunteering opportunities, please contact the Contact Centre Administrator at: contactcentre.aaurc@gmail.com or phone 07762714067.

Family Testimonials:

“I am extremely grateful for the centre and all the volunteers for enabling me to see my son.”

“In a short time of coming here I feel completely comfortable having my children in the centre and do not feel any need to worry about them. Thank you so much!”

“Thank you for your help in being able to see my son, I will always appreciate that.”

“When mum and dad split up, I was glad. The rowing stopped and mum did not cry anymore. After a while though I began to miss my dad. When I asked mum, she said it was best that I did not see him, as she didn’t want him coming to the house. Dad must have missed me too because he went to a solicitor who arranged for us to meet at a child contact centre. We have been meeting for about six months and I always look forward to Saturday afternoons.”  (Child visiting a centre)
