About the Bridport Child Contact Centre

The centre is organised by volunteers - 2 joint coordinators and a team of helpers. The volunteers come from all walks of life and give their time to enable the children to have contact with their non-resident parent. They have been DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) checked to ensure that there is no reason why they should not be in contact with children. They have received training to help them support the families using the contact centre and to help with the smooth running of the sessions. There will be at least 3 volunteers attending each time.



The coordinators have undertaken additional preparation, and they manage the running of the centre. Please note – we remain neutral and do not write reports about children or parents. We can only report the number of sessions attended if requested by the Courts.



Our volunteers attend at least 3 training sessions per year to ensure that they are up to date on procedures.



Our Centre is overseen by a Committee which includes a Chair, Treasurer, Minutes Secretary, a Solicitor and other professionals. They work voluntarily to ensure that our policies are reviewed and adhered to, for the safety of all who attend.

We are affiliated to and accredited by NACCC (National Association of Child Contact Centres). Our most recent accreditation being completed in April 2017. This is reviewed every three years.
