Summary:

The A Project is a community engagement and conflict resolution mediation charity. The child contact service has been set up in response to the needs of families using the mediation service. A new modern venue has been sourced in Soho Square which is situated opposite Soho Square gardens and easily accessible using public transport.

The centre is bright and clean with a kitchen area that can be used for light refreshments. The centre has an interactive touchscreen with a variety of games that can be played from the age of 2 years plus. The centre also has a selection of art and craft materials and board games. Parents will be encouraged to bring toys the children are familiar with as there is limited space for storage of toys.

The centre has a detailed, bright, and inviting website with a range of information included on this 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 team were open, friendly, and approachable and willing to listen to any comments and advice the assessor had. Any recommended actions following the visit are now complete meaning the service meets the standards for enhanced (supervised) accreditation.
