Kindred Connect Contact Centre offers a safe, friendly and neutral place where children of separated families can spend time with one of both of their parents, and sometimes other family members.
It is our standard practice to have only one family present at the Centre at any one time. We find this allows parents and children to focus on what is important to them without being interrupted.
We feel strongly about the importance of continuity for children and we make a point of providing children with the support of the same familiar Supervisors on each occasion.
Our Contact Centre is staffed by caring and experienced professionals and provides a safe, child-friendly and natural environment.
Any parent considering Kindred Connect's services is welcome to attend our Centre, to have a look around and meet our friendly staff. Children are also welcome, of course. We do however ask visitors to call beforehand and make a time so we can avoid compromising the privacy of any family in attendance.
We don’t discourage children from getting dirty and we can’t guarantee our yard is free from bugs or ants, feathers or fur. Our Centre is residence to many hand raised chickens and some of our neighbours include horses and cows.
We understand there may be children who don’t share our love of animals and in this case any animal contact can easily be avoided. We believe the therapeutic and educational benefits animals provide children far outweigh any risks such as insect bites.
Our Children’s Contact Centre is located in the historic and semi-rural town of Dayboro – 40 km Northwest of Brisbane city or a 10 minute drive from Petrie.
If required, arrangements may be made for Supervised Contact and Supported Changeovers to take place at child-friendly locations within Brisbane and its surrounding precincts. Off-site venues suggested by parents may include places like Southbank or Roma Street Parklands.
