How can we help you?

Parenting shouldn’t end when relationships do.

More than a million children have no contact whatsoever with one of their parents after separation. Unfortunately, some children experience behavioural issues including antisocial behaviour, distress, unhappiness, and both physical and emotional problems.

NACCC is the only charity in the UK dedicated to solving this problem by providing safe spaces where children can meet the parents they don’t live with. We oversee around 300 contact centres across the UK, run by a network of nearly 3,000 volunteers.
