Summary:

Nuneaton Child Contact Centre has been running for 32 years. It is the only contact centre in the Nuneaton area and as a result is busy, operating a waiting list from time to time. The centre is on the local bus route and is a 10-minute walk from the train station. A car park is available with some disabled parking next to the church.

There is a waiting area in the church, if required. Family time take place in a large hall with lots of space and a variety of toys and games for all age groups. A kitchen is used for serving drinks and families bring their own snacks. There is also a courtyard area for outdoor play.

The centre has a detailed, bright, and inviting website and 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.

The management team are very experienced and were very cooperative and helpful during the re-accreditation process. The volunteers appear welcoming and committed. Any recommended actions following the visit are now complete meaning the service meets the standards for supported contact accreditation.
