Family Courts – Child Contact Centres

Child Contact Centres

Child Contact Centres are independent voluntary charitable organisations set up to facilitate contact between a child and his/her parents, or other family members, with whom they no longer live, or perhaps with whom they have never lived.

Child Contact Centres are not an extension of the courts and are independent of the legal system.

Child Contact Centres provide supported contact as distinct from supervised contact. No one-to-one supervision occurs or can be facilitated. Further information on supervised contact is available from your local Health and Social Care Trust.

An Information Leaflet for Parents and Carers is available here.
