What is a Child Contact Centre?

A Child Contact Centre is a meeting place where children of separated families can enjoy contact with one (or both) parents, and sometimes other family members in a comfortable and safe environment. 

Armagh Child Contact Centre is staffed by volunteers who are impartial.  The Centre offers ‘Supported’ contact, whereby volunteers can assist, but there is no close observation of individual contacts, nor detailed reports written.  Above all, it is a place where children can relax and have fun. 

Parents attending the centre agree to abide by a clear set of rules, and leave their differences outside.  Resident parents may wish to remain at the Centre while contact takes place, this can be accommodated. 

Both parents may wish to visit the Centre in advance of the first contact visit.  This can also be arranged.
