Standards

NACCC child contact centres and services have an endorsed accreditation process which shows that all NACCC services work to agreed and approved national standards, which ensure that families using the services are safe. The national standards are updated by NACCC in line with legislation and good practice.

Accreditation for supported contact

All NACCC child contact centres which offer supported contact undergo an accreditation process which is renewed every three years. Accreditation demonstrates that the centre is working to the national standards for supported contact.

Enhanced Accreditation for supervised contact 

All NACCC child contact centres which offer supervised contact undergo an enhanced accreditation process which is renewed every three years. Enhanced accreditation demonstrates that the centre is working to the national standards for supervised contact.

NACCC updated the national standards for supported contact in 2015 and the national standards for supervised contact in 2017. The latest documentation and guidance is available to download below. Click on the PDF icon to open the document (cannot be modified).
