Children’s Contact Services provide safe, neutral and child-focused venues for supervised visits and changeovers to occur between children and their parents and other significant persons in the child’s life. Children’s Contact Services (CCS) aim to minimise a child’s exposure to conflict or unsafe situations when parents are separating or have separated.

CCS also work with families to encourage positive interaction between children and their parents and to support the strengthening of these relationships. Over time, and where possible and safe to do so, parents are encouraged to move to self-management of their arrangements for spending time with the child.

CCS are located throughout each State and Territory in Australia.
