Where can Supervised Contact take place?

Supervised Contact can be provided at our Contact Centre or off-site, at other child friendly locations such as parks, cafés or other recreation-type facilities.

Supervised Contact usually takes place at our child-friendly Contact Centre. The Australian Children’s Contact Services Association (ACCSA) promotes the use of Contact Centres and so do we. In our experience, contact is most enjoyable for children, when it takes place at our Centre.

The degree of risk and the level of supervision required are factors in choosing a between our centre-based facility, or in considering alternative venues. In some cases, a neutral venue may be advised – that is, one which does not hold significant emotional meaning for any of the parties involved.

Alternative Venues.

We provide Supervised Contact Services off-site, where appropriate, in accordance with Court Orders and/or the consent of both parents.

In considering alternatives to Centre based Contact, the needs and best interests of the child must always be kept uppermost in the decision-making process; this should include cultural considerations, the nature of the relationships between the child and family members, and physical safety issues. Suitable environments can include parks, cafés or other recreation-type facilities.

When identifying suitable venues, we keep in mind;

  • the needs and best interests of the children
  • the relationships between the child(ren) and family members
  • physical safety issues
  • the degree of risk
  • the level of supervision required

Supervised Contact should always take place in a safe, child-appropriate space, chosen for its suitability for encouraging positive, distraction-free interactions.
