Accreditation Summary

Bold Moves – Exeter is one of several contact centres run by Bold Moves across the south of the UK. Exeter has shops and the cathedral close by which makes it convenient for picnics and walks. There is a public car park near to the centre and good public transport links.

Bold Moves uses a building belonging to the Salvation Army. This is about to undergo some major refurbishment which will help bring the building up to date, improve the service offered and help the centre feel more welcoming to families. The centre has toys, puzzles and books but many parents now bring their own things for the children to do.

The centre has a detailed, bright, and inviting website with a range of information included on this for the children and families who 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.

A small close-knit team run the centre which appears to work well. The assessor would like to wish them all the best for their future working with families. The centre meets the standards for enhanced (supervised) contact accreditation.
