Child Contact Centres COVID UPDATE 5th January 2021 - we are currently reviewing our supported contact services and will be in touch directly with families currently registered with our service as soon as possible. We can confirm that our supervised contact centre will open as usual with additional measures in place to ensure everyone's safety. We believe that positive contact counts - Every child has a right to enjoy time with their non-resident parent. We have 5 supported contact centres based in Gainsborough, Grantham, Lincoln, Skegness and Spalding and 1 supervised contact centre in Lincoln. We also offer a handover service from our Lincoln centre. Supported child contact centres are suitable for families where no significant risk to the child has been identified but the parents no longer wish to see each other and cannot agree on other arrangements. The contact centre is intended to be a temporary measure to help build confidence and help the family move forward. They are run by dedicated teams of staff and volunteers who are impartial and see the children as the most important people in the centre. All our centres have a range of age appropriate toys, games and activities* and we aim to provide a warm and friendly atmosphere. * Unfortunately we are currently unable to provide toys, games and activities at our centres due to COVID restrictions. Supervised child contact centres are suitable for families where there may be a risk to the child, where a professional requires a report to determine future arrangements or where contact needs to be observed to ensure a parent can take care of the child's need. A trained supervisor will observe the contact and provide a contact record/report where specified. As with our supported centres, staff remain impartial and are child focused. Our centres are accredited by the National Association of Child Contact Centres (NACCC) and are independent from the courts, social services or any statutory agency.
