Children’s Contact Service

The Children’s Contact Service facilitates contact between young people and their families following a separation or relationship breakdown. A safe and supported environment is provided for supervised visits and changeovers.  

Supervised Visits 

There are many reasons families may require supported contact with their children. The Children’s Contact Service allows children to have meaningful interactions with their visiting family member, supervised by our experienced staff.  

Our well-resourced, child- and family-friendly space, focuses on children’s wellbeing and safety during visits.  


The Children’s Contact Service is a neutral venue for children to transfer safely from one parent or family member to another. Changeovers are pre-arranged with drop off and pick up times coordinated to allow children to engage with our staff and decompress before collection.  


Our Children’s Contact Service is available from the Wagga Wagga office.


There are set fees for the Children’s Contact Service.

Fees are payable upfront for the initial three-month period, per party. A following three-month period of services will be payable following a review appointment.
