Cafcass and NACCC both work within the Family Justice Service to ensure that children
from separated families can maintain safe and beneficial contact with non-resident parents. Cafcass works with cases that have made applications to the Family Court,
assesses for risk and advises, or refers, to supported contact centres or Cafcass
commissioned supervised contact services as part of planned work. NACCC is the
membership and accreditation body for the contact services sector and works to ensure
that in, and out of, court, contact centres and services are child focussed, safe and
deliver meaningful contact that helps parents, where appropriate, to move on and
resolve their dispute.
This Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was agreed in March 2018 and sets the terms and understanding between Cafcass and NACCC to support the maintenance of safe service delivery at accredited Child Contact Centres and Services, including information sharing about referral needs (children’s views and safety).
