How can I find a contact centre?

The following is a list of contact centres in Merseyside and Cheshire. They are all members of the National Association of Child Contact Centres. If you are thinking of arranging contact to take place at one of the centres it is a good idea to contact them beforehand to check the facilities and opening times. Some centres are free, some charge - often depending on the level of service they provide. You can also undertake a search for a Contact centre near you (or perhaps more importantly near where the child lives) by clicking here.

What are Contact Centres?

Sometimes a Court will specify that time spent between a child and a parent must, at least at first, be at a Contact centre. Usually this will be if there have been issues in the past such as drugs, alcohol or domestic violence. It may be that a child has not seen one parent for some time. Parents can agree, outside of court, either through mediation or by agreeing between themselves, to use a contact centre to start or restart contact between a child and their parent.

Child Contact Centres are safe, friendly and neutral places where children of separated families can spend time with a parent and sometimes other family members. They are child centred environments that put the needs of the children first.

Contacts centres offer varying levels of monitoring - from someone simply being ‘around’ to ensure everything goes smoothly and to help with parents meeting each other, to those centres where the relationship between the parent and the child is closely observed. Some report back to the Court in detail as to how the time spent with the child has gone, others will simply confirm that a parent and child have attended.
