Summary:

Burton-upon-Trent Child Contact Centre has been in operation since 1996 and uses a Victorian building on the main road that is used as a nursery when not a contact centre. The centre is close to the town centre which is well served by public transport and road links. There is on street parking nearby and a local shop next door.

The building is appropriate for the purpose of offering family time with a significant range of toys and other materials to support the sessions. The centre offers tuck shop items which are served from a good-sized kitchen through their hatch. A safe and secure outdoor space is used in the warmer months with a range of equipment and outdoor toys for families to engage with.

The centre has a detailed, bright, and inviting website with a range of information included on these for the 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.

This is a professional, well-run service by its longstanding and passionate volunteers. Any recommended actions following the visit are now complete meaning the service meets the standards for supported contact accreditation.
