Child Contact Services

by Relationships Scotland Family Mediation Tayside and Fife Claimed

Child Contact Centres are neutral, safe, child-friendly, staffed places where children can spend time with their parent(s) or any other family members they would not get to see otherwise, for a variety of reasons. This can be following the parents' separation or indeed any family situation where it is not possible for the parents/families to manage these arrangements independently. There can be mental health difficulties, substance misuse issues, child welfare concerns or a history of domestic abuse in the background, which can be serious obstacles to contact working independently in the first instance. It can simply be that parents cannot agree themselves, how often and for how long children are to be with one parent and subsequently relationships break down between the child and parent as result. It can be looked after children or children looked after by kinship carers, seeing their parents in the Centre in a protected and consistent way. Using a Centre means that the children can build their own relationships away from parental conflict or parental difficulties as much as possible and as long as it is safe.
