There is a large hall where contact sessions take place. The hall is always manned by a minimum of 2 volunteers and is well equipped with toys, games, craft activities and tables and chairs. There are also 2 Co-ordinators at every contact session.
There is a meeting room where we hold meetings and reviews. If you need to speak to a Co-ordinator in private, please ask to use the meeting room.
The Centre is fully equipped for disabled access, with a disabled parking bay and ramp outside. Meeting rooms, the hall and the sanctuary are on the ground floor. There are ladies and gents lavatories with baby changing facilities.
Child Contact Centre operates on a fortnightly basis with contact sessions running from 2 – 4pm.

We appreciate that from time to time contact may not be possible due to holidays, illness or special occasions.
