Summary:

Fairways Care (UK) Ltd was established in 2002 and was registered as a charity in 2021 with residential settings and contact services in Southampton and Bournemouth. Southampton has good rail and bus links. The contact service is run from the first floor of an office building with parking, food shops, cafés, and a park nearby.

Fairways provides a welcoming service for their clients with good facilities. Their centre was clean and inviting with all equipment in good working order. The two contact rooms were spacious and ideally set up, (especially for the young child) with age-appropriate toys. Families can also bring along toys for the children to play with.

The centre has a clear website and leaflets available 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.

The assessor has shared that it was a pleasure to visit Fairways and meet the team. The centre meets the standards for enhanced (supervised) contact.
