Supported contact is a low level of supervision of a child by safe adults whilst the child/children have contact with a non-resident family member.
Supported contact takes place in a variety of neutral community venues where there are facilities to enable children to develop and maintain positive relationships with non-resident parents and other family members. They are suitable for families where no significant risk to the child or those around the child have been identified.
Please note: Staff and volunteers are available for assistance but there is no close observation, monitoring or evaluation of individual contacts/conversation.
Supported contact does not usually have written report after each session, however, this can be provided if agreed within the pre planning stage.
