“It’s about listening to young people and supporting them to maintain contact with both parents in a safe and controlled environment.”
Pro-Contact enables and promotes contact for young people to maintain a healthy relationship with both sets of parents. Pro-Contact became part of CANW in 2014 and is a regional leader in family support and children’s services. The children and young people are at the core of what we do and Pro-Contact encourages and supports parents to focus on communication, parenting plans and childcare arrangements through parenting support sessions, using these to protect the child or young person from conflict.
We help to safeguard children and young people to ensure their needs come first. Our team of specialists works with families to find an arrangement to promote the benefit of contact whilst minimising any potential risk of harm.
Our work is flexible and accommodating to work and school life with sessions available weekends and evenings.
