Accreditation Summary

Date: 10/04/2023


Nottingham Child Contract Centre is a registered charity and was the original concept of Mary Lower, who, whilst serving as a magistrate realised there was a need for some space in which the non-resident parent could spend time with their child. The centre was the first in the country and is supported by the church whose halls it uses. It is located within the heart of the central shopping area of the town and is situated next to a tram stop.

The centre is modern, clean, tidy, well decorated and well resourced. The assessor has no doubt that the children using the centre will feel safe and supported in an environment that meets their needs appropriately.

The centre has a clear website and leaflets containing a range of information for the children and families using their service. This information helps them to anticipate everything from making a referral to the appropriate steps to take if they are unhappy or feel unsafe.

Nottingham Child Contact Centre remains a good quality service, essential to the local community. It is run by experienced and knowledgeable volunteers who are passionate about their work. Any recommended actions following the visit are now complete meaning the service meets the standards for supported contact accreditation.
