What is Supervised Contact?

Supervised Contact is ordered by a local authority or the court. The staff member, an experienced family, practitoner observes all aspects of childcare and family dynamics during the session. This provides a detailed, written record of contact time. This record is shared with parents so they may build their strengths and understanding of the child’s needs. It helps local authorities and other referring partners to make decisions about the child’s future, to ensure their safety and wellbeing.
