How is a centre checked?

An assessorSomeone working on our behalf who has experience and an interest in child contact services and must assess if a service meets our standards. looks round the centre’s rooms, toys, equipment, and any outside play areas to make sure that they are safe and good for you to use. They talk with the people at the centre to make sure that they are trained and helped to do their job as well as possible. They then check the informationThe assessor checks through the centre’s accreditation portfolio which includes policies, procedures, risk assessments, reports (if the service offers supervised contact) and information for families. on what happens at the centre and how it keeps you safe. If your family time happens in the community The service might use local community venues to deliver their service or in some cases, residential properties including family members’ homes, where this is safe and appropriate., then the assessor will check that this is going to be safe for you.

Summary:

Chance Gives Choices is a large and ever-growing organisation. This venue is in a large building on a business park on the outskirts of Havant. It is located on the ground floor with parking spaces specific to the contact service. Havant has reliable and regular train and bus services with a local bus stop located on the main road near the centre. Havant is a coastal town and provides families with opportunities for exploring the natural area. There are also areas of shops and eateries and places to take children to play.

The centre is welcoming, the rooms are bright and well decorated and there are toys in each contact room. There are toys available, however non-resident parents are also encouraged to bring things that they think their child will enjoy sharing with them during the sessions.

The centre’s ethos runs throughout the centre`s literature and the website, supporting parents to get things right for their children. This information helps them to anticipate everything from making a referral to the appropriate steps to take if they are unhappy or feel unsafe. Their children’s leaflet introduces the service, the workers and invites children to come and look around.

This venue is operating under a big organisation serving and supporting many people. The manager appears to have a well-supported, happy team.  The centre meets the standards for enhanced (supervised contact) accreditation.
