Children’s Contact Service

Children’s Contact Service – Geraldton

Enables children of separated parents to have a safe contact with the parent they do not live with.

WHAT THIS SERVICE PROVIDES

Where separated parents are experiencing high levels of conflict, Children’s Contact Service ensures the safe transfer of children from one parent to another and manages supervised visits so that each parent can spend time with their children.

WHO THIS IS TYPICALLY FOR

Help children from separated families establish or maintain a relationship with the parent they do not live with.

WHAT THIS SERVICE ENTAILS

Each party arrives and leaves at staggered times by separate entry and exits. Supervisors facilitate transfer of children from one parent to another.

ONLINE WORKSHOP

This online Parent Information Workshop has been developed for Children’s Contact Service clients wishing to use the service. This module will take roughly 15 minutes to work through. There is no assessment at the end; the workshop is designed purely to provide more information on the Children’s Contact Service and looking after yourself following separation.

Every family is different but the information provided in this online course includes academic research, as well as key concepts and ideas that other separated parents have found helpful.

  • This course is available to anyone who wants to complete it online
  • The completion of this online course is a compulsory component when engaging with the Children’s Contact Service.

ADDITIONAL DETAILS

Where necessary, the court can direct you to Children’s Contact Service for supervised visits.

Attending either a face-to-face workshop or completing the online Parent Information Workshop is a compulsory component when engaging with the Children’s Contact Service.

Fees range between $10 and $80 depending on income and any court orders regarding the contribution of each party.
