Child Contact Centres

99% of child contact centre clients would recommend the service to others


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 44 child contact centres in Scotland. If you need to use our services, there is probably one near you.


“The contact centre has helped massively in terms of avoiding conflict and has played a very supportive role. The children enjoy attending and it has enabled their needs to be prioritised”
