Contact Centres

NYAS recognises that every child has the right to keep in regular contact with both parents if this is in their best interests. Through its network of Family Contact Centres, the charity has continually sought to work with families and uphold the rights of the child by providing a safe and supportive environment for contact to take place.


Did You Know

NYAS provides Family Contact Centres in Birkenhead, Liverpool and London to allow parents who are separated from their children to rebuild their relationship as a family.

The main aim of the contact service is to gain long term positive outcomes for children, establishing and maintaining contact with the parent they no longer live with. The service also offers support to other family members such as grandparents and siblings, enabling them to keep in touch and meet up with a child in a safe environment.

NYAS has a professional, highly skilled and experienced team of contact facilitators who each work individually with a family to support a rewarding contact experience and guide parents through the process of contact with their child/children within the NYAS Contact facilities.

Referrals come from private individuals and a range of organisations such as local authorities, CAFCASS and solicitors.

For further information on NYAS Family Contact Centres please please email main@nyas.net or telephone 0151 649 8700.

“Thank you for your help. I realise that we are at an early stage and there is a long way to go before I can ever trust my children’s father but we’ve made a start. None of this would have been possible without your help and support.”

– Mrs Clark from Liverpool
