Summary:

Chiltern Child Contact Centre is an experienced and well-established centre providing an excellent quality service in a welcoming and friendly environment. The centre is ideally located just off Amersham’s high street, with plenty of local shops and cafes. Although there are no parks nearby, within a 15-minute walk the families can use an affordable leisure centre with a variety of activities available. The centre has good public transport links with parking available and uses the church hall and facilities.

The centre had a very welcoming atmosphere and was bright, friendly, clean, tidy and warm. There was a good selection of toys available covering all children’s ages.

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

The volunteers and co-ordinator were very engaging, approachable and knowledgeable about their role. Any recommended actions following the visit are now complete meaning the service meets the standards for supported contact accreditation.
