Summary:

Aylesbury Vale Child Contact Centre has been in operation for 13 years and is located in the Methodist Church in the centre of Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire. Transport links are good with the rail and bus stations being less than 10 minutes’ walk away. Parking is for drop off only, with a car park less than 5 minutes’ walk away.

The centre was warm, and the welcome was friendly and reassuring. The contact room was well set up with plenty of good quality toys and games in good condition, though not so many as to be overwhelming. They were appropriate for children of all ages, including a table tennis table.

The centre has a detailed, bright, and inviting website and leaflets with a range of information included on this for the families that may use the centre. This information helps them to anticipate everything from making a referral to the appropriate steps to take if they are unhappy or feel unsafe.

The chair and coordinator demonstrated a thorough understanding of the issues surrounding contact arrangements and the accreditation paperwork was well-organised and professional. Any recommended actions following the visit are now complete meaning the service meets the standards for supported contact accreditation.
