Summary:

Time Together Brecon is a new service based centrally within Brecon. It is held within a charity owned building shared with other local businesses. There are some local bus services and although there is not a local railway station there are bus links from Abergavenny. Brecon can be accessed relatively easily by road and although the centre does not its own car parking, there is some on street parking (time limited) and local car parks within a short walk away. There is a pleasant shopping centre, a children’s park and soft play facilities nearby.

The service is held on the first floor of Steeple House and is suitable for one family at a time. It is well resourced with a great range of furniture, toys and games. A kitchen space is available which can be used for the preparation of drinks, snacks and food.

The centre has a detailed, bright, and inviting website and leaflets containing 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 co-ordinator of the service is a highly trained professional and passionate about working with children and families.

The assessor has no doubt that Time Together Brecon will be an asset to the local community. Any recommended actions following the visit are now complete meaning the service meets the standards for enhanced (supervised contact) accreditation.
