Description

Maa Family Centre understands the difficulties which can arise after a family break up and how this often affects the child's emotional wellbeing. Maa Family Centre believes in Maintaining An Arch between families. Our aim is to re-establish contact between children and their non-resident parent and/or family members. We recognise the importance and the need of contact centres for children and their families. We believe in working with children and families to re-establish contact, making a valuable contribution in the lives of children. At Maa Family Centre we have an experienced qualified Coordinator and a team of professionally trained and experienced staff. All staff members have an Enhanced DBS Check and have completed Naccc's mandatory training requirements. The team are highly motivated, and committed to providing a quality professional service. Our aim is to provide a child focused, neutral, friendly and safe environment for children of separated families. Allowing children to fully enjoy their time at our centre, whilst spending time with their non-resident parent and sometimes other family members, giving the children an opportunity to establish meaningful and positive contact with their family members. We offer an impartial service where contacts are accepted without prejudice or judgement. Whilst ensuring we always put the needs and safety of the children first. All users of our service are treated with respect, whilst taking into consideration their individual needs. At our centre we have one large and one medium, child friendly, comfortable, well resourced contact rooms. Our medium size room is on the ground floor and our large size room is on the first floor. We have a small cosy kitchenette, toilet and patio area at the back of our building

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.
