Our Dedicated Supervised Contact Services
Our expertises are in the following areas:
This service is a specialist service providing support to those most vulnerable in our society. We work closely with Local Authorities, Solicitors and the Children and Family courts across the South West. We provide supervisors for the purpose of supervised contact between children and their families when they are living apart. We are dedicated to providing effective positive contact and improving the experiences of our children.
We promote and facilitate positive contact through the creation of a warm, informal atmosphere in a comfortable and safe neutral environment. In addition to this we also specialise in Independent Social Work assessments, Appropriate Adult Services, Life Story Work and much more.
We are available to provide services in Bristol and all across the South West. We are flexible and versatile focusing on the individual needs of the child, providing support specific to the individual circumstances. We have positive links across the South West with a number of charities who support us with the use of their community buildings.
We are committed to providing a safe, child friendly environment, focused directly on the child’s individual needs. We aim to co-ordinate contact sessions to minimise travel time for those children we work with. We are aware of the difficulties for families, foster carers and professionals when trying to co-ordinate these sessions. We can facilitate a one off meeting with all those necessary to help support the social worker with compiling a contact plan. We will provide a contact schedule for the social worker to circulate following this meeting. This service is provided to help elevate unnecessary problems and help promote security / stability in the child offering a predictable clear workable plan in advance.
Due to the complexities of this service we have developed a specialist team for this which can be found using the following link. Children's Contact Services
