Divorce and separation are really upsetting and challenging times for everyone in a family. Divorce and separation affects children in different ways but emotional and behavioural problems are more common when their parents are fighting or separating. But we can support you and your family through this difficult time.

Contact Centre Service - Our Newcastle based contact centres and services provide a neutral place for you and your child(ren) to meet when you no longer live at home. Our centres are child friendly and our services are designed to meet the unique needs of your family and circumstances.

We can also provide supervised contact in other local community settings to better suit the parent and child.

Our centre is affiliated to the National Association of Child Contact Centres.

The centres are available to parents, carers, Local Authorities, Courts, CAFCASS, solicitors and all professionals working with separating families to help the children deal with the family separation.

There is a charge for this service, please get in touch to find out more.

Father and daughter: Newcastle Contact Centre success story Children North East

When John’s relationship with his partner had totally broken down and he was having trouble gaining access to his little girl, he was put in touch with our charity.

The staff at Children North East are solely focussed on what's best for the child. They don't take sides and are very impartial and honest.

The Contact Centre’s been invaluable. The staff are absolutely brilliant, some of the best people I’ve ever met, keeping us going along the way.
