Family Contact Service
The Maya Angelou Family Contact service provides supervised and supported contact to families with looked after children.
We've recently moved to a brand new purpose-built facility with plenty of activities for all ages. It's easy to find and there are lots of interesting shops, restaurants and green spaces to visit nearby.
All our contact supervisors are fully trained to ensure all children are safe and protected at all times.
They are all DBS checked and hold relevant training on child protection and health and safety and are all qualified in paediatric first aid.
If a child has suffered, or is at risk of harm during contact we provide a qualified worker to supervise the session.
If no significant risk to the child has been identified, supported contact may be the best option. Staff are available for assistance but there is no close observation or monitoring.
- We invite social workers to contact our Family Contact Service so we can discuss your needs:
Tracy Miller - 020 8489 2049 / 07729 735 112
- We’ll send you a referral and risk assessment document to complete and return.
- Once we receive your risk assessment, we’ll set up a contact planning and agreement meeting. This is where the social worker, manager and contact supervisors meet with all adults having contact with the child/ren. This may involve two meetings if the parents are no longer in a relationship.
- The contact session takes place.
- We email you a report.
Supervised contact cannot take place at the cinema or swimming pool.
Where supported contact is required, the supervisor will not be expected to pay any long travel or entrance fees; please consider this when planning contact.
The contact service is five minutes' walk from Wood Green underground station (Piccadilly Line).
Address: 39 Winkfield Road, London, N22 5RP - first left past the Crown Court on Lordship Lane.
