Summary:

Norwich Family Contact Centre is based at the Vauxhall Centre in Norwich – a community building owned by Action for Children. The centre has existed as a NACCC member for some time, although it has not been operational / accredited for a prolonged period and has now transitioned into a service managed and run by Parenting Apart Centre East (PACE). PACE is accredited by NACCC and has multiple locations in the area. Norwich has good transport links with regular bus services and there is ample parking available at the centre.

The organisation has two indoor spaces that it can make use of, as well as a larger outside space, weather permitting. The centre has an appropriate range of well-maintained toys, games and resources, families are also permitted to bring their own with them.

The service has a bright and engaging website providing a range of information about the service and how it works. This information lets people know what they might expect from the service if or when they go on to use this.

This is a lovely small contact centre, with an experienced co-ordinator and volunteers providing a much-needed service to the local community. Overall, this is has been a really positive assessment. Any recommended actions following the visit are now complete meaning the service meets the standards for supported contact accreditation.
