Accreditation is a way of checking that your contact centre is safe and meets our standards.

How is a centre checked?

An assessorSomeone working on our behalf who has experience and an interest in child contact services and must assess if a service meets our standards. looks round the rooms, toys, equipment, and any outside play areas to make sure that they are safe and good for you to use. They talk with the people at the centre to make sure that they are trained and helped to do their job as well as possible. They then check the informationThe assessor checks through the centre’s accreditation portfolio which includes policies, procedures, risk assessments, reports (if the service offers supervised contact) and information for families. on what happens at the centre and how it keeps you safe.

When the assessor is happy that a centre meets our standards then they are awarded their accreditation and you can find them on this website. Accreditation happens every three years with extra checks if needed.

Accreditation Summary

Summary:

Oswestry Child Contact Centre is one of three in Shropshire that have existed since 1994. They are a registered charity with a small a management committee that includes the Centre Leader. The coordinator, the only paid staff member, has been in post for 21 years and was also involved prior to that for several years so is very experienced. Volunteers are appropriately recruited, trained and supported.

The Centre is very conscious of confidentiality so the minimum of information about families is recorded, and paper files are used. Comprehensive referral and pre-contact forms are completed. As the venue is not in use at present it was not possible to see how it looks when families visit but it appeared to be in good condition with clean toilets and appropriate cleaning materials etc. for covid safety. There are appropriate facilities for wheelchair users. The Centre is efficiently organised in line with NACCC standards. I am pleased to recommend its reaccreditation.
