Staff are carefully matched to the family’s needs and are focused on the success of the visit.

The service offers:

  • contact times and activities suitable for children and families
  • secure, family friendly environments
  • safe, reliable transport
  • comprehensive reporting as required.

We believe that contact visits should be based on building and maintaining family relationships and that, through sensitive planning and supervision, we can help parents and children enjoy a great experience.
