Swan Family Centres have officially been awarded another two regions to operate with the Children and Family Court Advisory and Support Service (Cafcass) - the South West and the South East. Swan Family already works alongside Cafcass in our Lambeth centre and are delighted to be able to expand our services within our Croydon, Hackney, Bedford and Coventry centres too.
The supported and supervised contact we can deliver aims to provide a safe, neutral and comfortable place for children to see their parents or family. It can take place in our centres in a private room, within the community and family homes.
Cafcass represents children in family court cases in England. They independently advise the family courts about what is safe for Children and in their best interests. Cafcass put the child's needs, wishes and feelings first, making sure that children's voices are heard at the heart of the family court setting.

“We are excited and rearing to go with our new contracts. The work that both Swan Family and Cafcass can achieve when working together is unmatched and having the child at the very heart of our service will forever remain”.
