Accreditation Summary

Summary:

The Mold Contact centre has been established for around 10 years and is run as part of the Barnardo’s Cymru North Wales Contact service with another centre in Rhyl. The Contact centre is part of the Barnardo’s children’s charity group of Children’s services and as such is very much based round the needs of children.

The Contact Centre is situated at the rear of the High Street with a cost effective large car park just outside and bus stops nearby, it is a ground floor building with easy access.

The Centre now only accepts referrals from Cafcass Cymru and not other professionals or self referrals.

There is comprehensive information for parents and they are also sent directions and pictures of the centre prior to their first visit.

It has a welcoming well appointed Contact room at the front of the building which has the Centre’s staff’s small office at the back on an open plan basis so they can informally observe contact or be in the Contact Room itself.

There was good display of toys and activities in the Contact Room  for all age ranges and in good condition.

This is an established Supervised Centre with clear and detailed policies and procedures from Barnardo’s as the parent body. It also has an experienced manager with a background in domestic abuse and child protection work.

The service meets the accreditation standard for supervised contact.
