During the Coronavirus Child Contact Centres have found themselves in unprecedented territory and that has meant that many have taken the opportunity to innovate in terms of the services that have on offer. NACCC are working hard to take a central position in supporting our centres to be able to safely work with families ensuring that some form of contact remains available so that most children do not need to go without. We have various information about how to do this and would welcome contact regarding any queries you might have.

Virtual contact services

In order to meet the needs of children and families whilst also complying with government advice NACCC has worked with our members to develop a range of technology enabled solutions to child contact. Many centres are now able to provide virtual contact and you can now search for ‘virtual supported contact’ and ‘virtual supervised contact’ on our ‘Find a centre‘ advanced search. 

NACCC would urge you, for the most up to date advice, to refer to your local government and council guidance
