Child Contact Help

Child Contact Centres, such as the one that meets upstairs in our community centre twice a month are there to help parents whose relationships have broken down. The parents need help to sort out access to their children. For the non-resident parent, not seeing their children is often painful, and equally the resident parent may be nervous and upset about leaving their child/ren. The Centre provides a place of safety and support for both parents, and even grandparents, giving quality time for them to see, play, talk with the children they would otherwise have no or little contact with. Parents often say that they don't know what they would do without the Centre, and that it has enabled them to regain their greatest loss, that of not seeing their children. Children of all ages come; at present our youngest is a baby of 7 months, and the oldest are young teenagers.

As is usual in Charity work, we are very short of volunteers. We all work either a morning or an afternoon once a month and swap around with each other as needed. I can't offer that you come and see us in action, but if anyone is interested in volunteering or knowing more, please chat to Pauline Noble, Julianne Wilderspin or Pat Starr, who are all members of this Church and volunteers at the Centre, or visit their website by clicking here. or you can email them on contact@aylesburyvalechildcontactcentre.org.
