A father used Cheltenham Child Contact Centre’s supervised service last year as part of the process in sorting out contact arrangements with his daughters. He told Sarah, one of the co-ordinators, how important the centre had been in getting contact re-established:

“Just to let you know that the final hearing went well and next month I can take my daughters out into the community. There is then a stepped arrangements programme in place leading to overnight stays in about six months’ time. Matters progress further from then to weekend stays, shared half terms and school holidays etc so I have to be satisfied with the outcome as I achieved a lot more than I thought I would leading up to the final hearing. Over the next four weeks I need to continue to meet the children at their grandfather’s house. This is difficult, but I just need to persevere as it is only for a few weeks. The use of Cheltenham Contact Centre did play a prominent part in the hearing and I would like to thank both yourself and Pippa for your time and effort. I believe my ex- wife’s refusal to contemplate the use of the Contact Centre demonstrated to the judicial panel that there was a deliberate intention to obstruct and control my access to the children.”

Cheltenham Child Contact Centre is run from the Oasis Centre in Cheltenham. 
We love Cheltenham’s reading corner!

Cheltenham Child Contact Centre is located at the Oasis centre in Cheltenham and offers a supported contact service every Saturday afternoon and supervised services by arrangement.
