Impact Family Services in Scarborough helps to keep children in touch with both parents after separation.
We offer the following services:
Family Support Work: if you are separating and are worried and confused about which way to turn, give us a call and see if we can help. We can give you information on child contact issues, conflict, family mediation, DNA testing, drug/alcohol abuse testing, the application process for the family court, and many other things you may be worrying about.
Family mediation: is an alternative way of resolving issues surrounding separation. Our family mediators help separated couples to find their own positive solutions to issues such as child contact arrangements. This process can minimise potential conflict and offer a quicker and more cost effective alternative to court proceedings.
Supported child contact: offers a safe
and friendly neutral venue where
children of separated families can spend time with the parent they don’t live
with and sometimes other family members. Our fabulous contact room is full of toys, games books and
crafts to keep children of all ages entertained. Sessions run for up to two
hours, usually with more than one family in the centre. Staff members are on hand to oversee the sessions
and offer support and guidance where appropriate;
however supported contact is not closely monitored and written
reports or written feedback are not given.
Supervised child contact: ensures the physical safety and
emotional well-being of a child when risks have been identified. It also assists
in building and sustaining positive relationships between a child and the parent they don’t live with.
Impact Family Services provides
privacy and confidentiality to each family and is structured to provide safety
to all concerned and maximum stimulation for children. Written feedback of each session is
