Summary:

Swan Family Centre, Coventry, is one several in England and Wales that Swan Family Centres runs as part of the wider service offered by Swanstaff Recruitment Ltd. The organisation is very experienced in running contact services and has the necessary policies and procedures in place. This particular centre has been operating since 2016 and is situated to the southwest of the city centre just outside the ring road, about 10 minutes’ walk from the train station and close to bus routes. It is at the edge of a residential area and close to a small retail park, and a green space park.

The centre is bright, colourful, and welcoming with attractive and well-equipped rooms. It is well cared for – each room being clean, tidy and well organised, with displays of children’s art on the walls. There is an ample selection of suitable toys, all in good condition, but not so many as to be overwhelming or disorganised.

The centre has a range of bright, colourful leaflets showing the contact rooms and including a range of information 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.

Staff are friendly and helpful and are well supported by their managers who were well prepared and had organised a comprehensive portfolio. They were receptive to suggestions and demonstrated a really sound understanding of the role of the contact centre and the responsibilities of running it effectively. Any recommended actions following the visit are now complete meaning the service meets the standards for enhanced (supervised) contact accreditation.
