Parents going through a tough divorce or separation can find it too difficult to see each other, so children need a safe, welcoming place to spend time with their non-resident parent.
Child contact centres can play an essential role in helping children affected by family breakdown to maintain relationships with the parent they no longer live with, or with other family members.
The central concept of a child contact centre is to offer a safe, friendly, neutral, child-centred environment for children to meet their non-resident parent or family member. They are designed to be a stepping stone to a more permanent arrangement for future contact.
There are 45 child contact centres in Scotland. If you need to use our services, there is probably one near you.
