What is a children’s contact service?

Stepping Stones Supervision help children from separated families to establish or maintain a relationship with the parent they do not live with. When families separate and the transfer of a child or children from one parent to another is a problem Stepping Stones Supervision provides a neutral venue for safe visits and changeovers.

Where necessary, or as directed by a court order, the Service can supervise the time a child or children spend with a parent or other family members. Sometimes this is because of allegations of violence. Sometimes it is because a child or children are being reintroduced to a parent or family member when they have spent little or no time together.
