A revolutionary new child contact centre has been launched by domestic violence association, Respect.

Dads' Space 1-2-1 (www.dads-space.org) and Mum's Space 1-2-1 (www.mums-space.org) allows parents who are separated from their children to keep in touch, even in difficult circumstances. The web-based communication facility enables separated parents and children to share photos, email, chat, send gifts and cards, and play games online.

The aim of each website is to support separated children and parents in developing their relationships and enhancing their communication.

For some children, there are risks that outweigh the benefit of direct contact with a parent. Where there has been domestic violence the child or non-violent parent may not be or feel safe for contact arrangements to be in place. Dads' Space and Mum's Space 1-2-1 provide a safe contact solution where risks are high and contact has been requested.

However, the service is not just for those where there are risks, the 1-2-1 service can also be used as an enhancement to existing contact arrangements or indeed where geography or work commitments present a barrier.

Providing separate contact space is also ideal for children who are looked after and want to retain contact with both or either parent.

The sites have different levels of moderation depending on the outcome of a risk assessment. The service can be accessed through referrals from relevant professionals and agencies working with families, including Family Solicitors.

If you would like to try the site before making a referral, or would like more information then please contact Lesley Weber on: info@dads-space.org or 020 7022 1854 / 1852.
