Summary:

Ty Gelli Resource Centre in Llanelli is a Carmarthenshire County Council facility which started to undertake supervised contact as a pilot project via the Courts in 2010. It only undertakes supervised contact in public law where it is Court ordered. Contact may take place in other venues such as Felinfoel Centre, the community or family homes.

Ty Gelli is a former residential property on two floors with only limited parking at one side and a small play area to the rear. The main entrance and reception is to one side on the left and a second exit from the kitchen is used when visitors leave. The front door is not used, there is a total of three contact rooms that are comfortably furnished, light and airy. There is CCTV that covers all the communal rooms and the car park and outside area. The ground floor is disabled-friendly.

There are two bathrooms with baby-changing and disabled facilities on the ground floor.

The centre has plenty of toys but during the Covid pandemic has been encouraging parents to bring their own and some toys are kept in boxes that are reserved for each child/family. There are feedback forms specifically for children in Welsh and English and with versions for older and younger children. These were seen in a feedback folder and they were generally very positive.

This is a long-established and well-run Centre that meets NACCC standards.
