Our Mission is Simple...

Adult relationships can remain difficult after parents separate or divorce. Yet the majority of children want, and need, to maintain a relationship with both parents and other relatives who are important to them. 

Salisbury Child Contact Centre is a Supported Contact Centre whose aims are to provide a safe, neutral and comfortable place for children to see their non-resident parents or family. Supported Child Contact Centres are suitable for families when no significant risk to the child or those around the child has been identified.

We maintain a stance of impartiality when working with parents and other family members, and we maintain a strict code of confidentiality at all times´╗┐
