Information for professionals working with children and families

This section provides information and guidance for professionals working in the child contact sector. It is targeted at social workers, courts, solicitors, teachers and volunteers to support your engagement with our child contact centre and services.

We encourage professional to uses the resources in this section and the wider website to inform and support your work with our child contact centre and to ensure we are delivering appropriate and high quality services for children and families.

As part of our response to Covid 19 we have provided on line training to support centres deliver virtual contact, where appropriate, and would encourage centres and professionals to continue to use child contact centres as they re-open and, where necessary, virtual contact to retain relationship between children, parents and their wider family.
