Volunteers needed at Abington Avenue Child Contact Centre

Maintaining contact with both parents is recognised as being very important for a child’s wellbeing.  Our Child Contact Centre is a safe, friendly place where children can spend time with a parent who no longer lives with them.   We are accredited by the National Association of Child Contact Centres [naccc.org.uk] and offer ‘supported’ contact, for families where there is no identified safeguarding risk.

Our volunteers help parents and children to feel at ease, to play together and to build up a healthy relationship.  We work in teams, with each team serving on one Saturday a month for between 4 and 6 hours. Due to ill health a number of loyal volunteers have had to step down recently, and we are therefore in urgent need of more help.  More information can be obtained on request by contacting Abington Avenue URC on 01604 604623.
