WHAT IS SUPERVISED PARENTING TIME?
When parents separate, access visits with children may be a problem. For various reasons the Decision- Making Parent may have concerns regarding the Access Parent having unsupervised visits with their children. As well, difficulties sometimes arise between the parents at the time of exchange of the children.
The Supervised Access Centre offers separated families a way to deal with some of these problems. The Centre also provides a large, child friendly play centre where visits and exchanges can take place under the supervision of trained staff and volunteers.
Dalhousie Place, Brantford, Haldimand & Norfolk is currently offering in person access and exchanges. Please contact the Brantford site (519) 751-0466 or Simcoe site (519) 428-4838 for more information.
The Brantford and District Supervised Access Centre offers safe, neutral, child-focused services including supervised visits, exchanges and support for families.
Staff and volunteers operate under the guidelines of the Best Practices, Government of Ontario. All volunteers are screened, complete a 6 session training program and participate in on-going training throughout their service.
