    Handover

    Where the non-resident family member can take the child away from the centre. The role of the Contact Workers is to facilitate the handover of the child from one party to another, so they have no need to meet directly. This is done at the beginning and the end of the time out of the centre. Handover can take place 6 days a week Monday – Saturday
