Children’s contact services provide safe, neutral and child-focussed venues for supervised visits and changeovers to occur between children and their parents and other significant persons in the child’s life. They assist parents who are experiencing conflict to manage these arrangements.

Children’s Contact Services work with families to encourage positive interaction between children and their parents, and to support the strengthening of these relationships. Over time, and where possible, parents are encouraged to move to self-management of their arrangements for spending time with the child.
