how can supervised contact benefit my child?

Supervised contact is child focused.

The main benefit of Supervised Contact is in providing the child with a safe and secure space for them to spend time with a non-residential parent.

The supervision means that the non-residential parent and child are free to spend time together, and allows for regular contact, in a friendly environment where the child can seek assistance if they become upset or fearful, and where the supervisor can intervene at any time should the need arise.
