Accreditation Summary

Summary:

Waterlooville Child Contact Centre has been running since 1999 and is run alongside the centre in Havant with the same co-ordinator managing both centres. The centre is based at St Winifred’s Church in Cowplain. There is parking available on site and good transport links to the centre. It is ideally placed for those families who may be planning to have time away from the service with local cafes, shops and a park 15 minutes’ walk away.

The building was bright, friendly, clean, tidy, spacious and warm with one large area for families to use. There’s an assortment of toys and equipment available for all ages including a safe, well maintained and secure outside play area. Families can also bring in toys/games from home.

The centre has 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.

Havant Child Contact Centre is an experienced and well-run supported contact centre with friendly and approachable volunteers. The coordinator (along with the support of committee members and volunteers) worked extremely hard to ensure procedures and the correct paperwork are of a high standard, ensuring the safety for all who attend the centre. Any recommended actions following the visit are now complete meaning the service meets the standards for supported contact accreditation.
