Our supported sessions are suitable for families where trust has broken down or communication is difficult and a neutral space is needed.
This service is available as community contact.
We are proud to have the support of BBC Children in Need funding for supported sessions.
Pricing (only Non-Resident pays)

Supported sessions can also be a step forward after supervised sessions. Apart from attendance dates and times, no detailed reports are written unless risk of harm becomes apparent to the child, parent or centre worker.
You do not have to see or meet the other adults involved in the contact session.
The non resident person is required to arrive 10 minutes before and leave 10 minutes after the child and the resident person. This is the same for every family that attends.
Several families will be together in the various rooms and staff and volunteers are available for support and assistance but there is no close observation, monitoring or evaluation of individual contacts and conversations.
