Westwood Child Contact Centre is situated in premises that are part of Trinity Methodist Church and is open every Saturday morning. The contact centre has good transport links and is close to the town centre and bus station. The centre mainly uses the ground floor for contact with three interconnected rooms including the kitchen area plus a separate small room that is used for pre-meetings or a waiting room when necessary. There is also a large garden with outdoor equipment and toys.
The centre co-ordinator is very experienced and efficient and has been involved with the centre since its beginning over twenty years ago. During the pandemic the centre went to great lengths to remain open with measures put in place to ensure the safety of families and volunteers running the service. Management is strong and volunteer numbers have been maintained through the pandemic partly attributable to the good, ongoing communication with them by the co-ordinator throughout the period
Pre-visit and review meetings are thorough and always include the children which is appreciated by the parents using the service. This is a efficiently run service which meets the standards for accreditation.
