Supervised contact is used when it has been determined that a child has suffered or is at risk of suffering harm during contact with families. Referrals will usually be made by the local authority, another child contact centre, a court, CAFCASS officer or by a self-referral. Supervised contact supports the physical safety and emotional wellbeing of a child whilst they have contact with their non-resident parent. We support re-engagement in parent-child or sibling relationship after time lapse of no contact. We can help develop alternative parenting styles to promote positive parenting, which in turn can promote a healthy and positive attachment.

Supervised contact includes a written observational report documenting each session.

Reports may then be made available to parents, CAFCASS, Courts, Social Workers on request.
