Summary:

Children’s Links has been running child contact services for some years, supporting children and their families from across Lincolnshire. The organisation provides a range of other services alongside child contact; these vary from play and stay sessions, to toy libraries. The setting is in an industrial area on the edge of Lincoln, with ample parking.

The setting is child friendly and has a variety of appropriate furniture, decoration, and good quality toys etc. The contact space has ample room for children to be able to move around making the most of a range of resources.

The centre has robust systems in place designed to prepare people for using the service and lessening any potential anxiety. Their planning and preparation help people to know what they can expect from the service and what the service will expect from them in return.

The assessor has no doubt that this organisation provides a good quality service that people from the local community will benefit from. The centre meets the standards for enhanced (supervised contact) accreditation.
