Children’s contact services

Children’s Contact Services (CCSs) are designed to provide a safe, supervised environment for children to spend time with the parent they do not live with, or to facilitate the transfer of children from one parent to another, in circumstances where parents are not able to manage their own parenting time arrangements. The primary aim is to help children remain connected or connect with all members of their family, and to help everyone to feel safe and comfortable in potentially difficult circumstances.

There are a number of government funded CCSs around South Australia, and these are:

Applications can be made by completing this FORM and forwarding it the relevant service, or if using AnglicareSA, by using the online form above.

There are some privately run Children’s Contact Services, however there is presently no accreditation scheme or government authority monitoring these, so caution should be exercised. The Australian Government has released a consultation paper: Establishment of an Accreditation Scheme for Children’s Contact Services to consider proper accreditation of Children’s Contact Services.
