During our next year, Children’s Contact Services will continue its commitment to the work we do by:
* Continuing to provide a unique needs led service for Children and Young People.
* Developing intervention strategies to support and strengthen families in difficulties that show positive measurable outcomes.
* Offering high calibre, dedicated and committed staff.
* Expanding and improving our workforce to the best of their ability.
In early 2017 we changed our name of the company to Children’s Contact Services to reflect the service we now provide.
After 4 years of operation, in 2016 we expanded our services to cover all over the South of England, West of England and Wales providing a much-needed service to vulnerable children and their families.
In 2014 after being established in the local community throughout Bristol and the surrounding areas we achieved enhanced accreditation from the National Association of Child Contact Services after years’ worth of hard work.
The Service was set up to provide Supervised and Supported contact in a safe environment within Bristol and the surrounding area. The service has successfully developed to provide detailed reports for court purposes over the years.
Using the company’s wide connections, we were commissioned by local authorities to deliver contact services for families going through separation. The learning from this direct work with parents gave our staff confidence to work with families in need and offer interventions that prevented family breakdown and children entering the care system.
The company was formed with this simple message that is still extant today “This is for all the children who don’t live with their families… ‘We can’t take away the past but we can sure help make the future better.”
The founder of Children’s Contact Services is a registered Child Protection Social worker in Bristol who has worked with children and families for over 20 years. Our first projects were for vulnerable children and their families, enabling them to feel included and supported.
The service was developed in 2013 following years of research into the available contact services in the Bristol and surrounding areas.

Contact staff not only supervise but are happy to give help and advice if needed. This is a brilliant service for struggling families and they make everyone feel welcome.
Really friendly workers, make trips out exciting for the children and encourage lots of interaction. Made to feel at ease it a difficult situation.
