The Mothers’ Union (MU) in the Diocese of Winchester is involved with a child contact centre at Popley, near Basingstoke. It is staffed by volunteers, who are mostly but not exclusively MU members, who are trained and help out on a regular basis. We operate under the umbrella of the National Association of Child Contact Centres (NACCC) who are currently celebrating their 25th anniversary.
Families and Solicitors
The centre is at St. Gabriel’s Church, Tewkesbury Close, Popley, Basingstoke, RG24 9DU
and is accredited with the National Association of Child Contact Centres www.naccc.org.uk
Families, Parents and Solicitors seeking to use the Centre should:
Phone 07712 520568 or email NorthHantsCCC@hotmail.com for more information and then complete forms via the central hub at www.naccc-selfrefferals.org.uk – and select ‘find my centre ‘ and type in Popley or Basingstoke
Could you help?
The sessions take place as and when needed to meet the need.
You do not have to be a member of the MU but everyone has to be DBS checked, approved by the NACCC and given some training before starting to help.
It is a great joy to see children re-establishing contact with a parent who sometimes has driven 100’s of miles to be there or may not have seen their child/children for over a year.
Would you be interested in volunteering at an existing Centre?
- Although there are also Centres in Andover, Romsey, Eastleigh, Southampton and Newbury, there is a huge need across the whole Hampshire
- Fundraising is not a huge issue as local funding is often available
- Volunteers love helping families rebuild working relationships
