Recognising the achievements of NACCC Child Contact Centres has never been more important. Child Contact Centres work tirelessly to ensure that “Parenting Doesn’t End When Relationships Do”, this goes beyond the parenting offered by the birth parents of a child and includes the relationships of others, like grandparents.

Covid-19 makes the relationships of separated families even more fragile than they ever have been. Child Contact Centres have stepped up to this challenge and demonstrated the upmost professionalism and dedication to their work, in the best interests of the children and families using their services.

On the 17th November 2020, Elizabeth Coe and Philip Coleman were in a meeting with Hilary Sharpe from Grandparents4Contact, when Hilary took a moment to make us aware of some outstanding practice from the Children’s Links Child Contact Centre.

As chance would have it, we were recording the meeting for an entirely different purpose, meaning that we are able to share this feedback directly.

Elizabeth and the entire NACCC team would like to take this opportunity to say Thank You, to every individual NACCC member, staff member, and volunteer for the expertise, commitment, dedication and professionalism that continues to be demonstrated in all child contact centres across the country.

Don’t forget, that we would like to celebrate the work of child contact centres and with this in mind, we would welcome nominations for those you think should be recognised. We are also looking for sponsorship to support us in this.
