The Weston-super-Mare Children’s Contact Centre – can you help?


Weston-Super-Mare’s Children’s Contact Centre provides for children whose parents are separated and have issues with regard to children seeing their non-resident parent. The Contact Centre is a neutral place where children of separated families can enjoy contact with their non-resident parents and sometimes other family members in a comfortable and safe environment.

Unfortunately the cost of running The Weston super Mare Children’s Contact Centre continues to increase and we need funding for training volunteers, using the services or a coordinator, rent for the building that is used, running a support line, insurance, and being a member of The National Association of Child Contact Centres.

Any contributions towards the work carried out is most strongly welcomed.

If you can assist the Centre with its fundraising, please contact the Chair, Sian Hopkin Hopkin@powellslaw.com
