We are delighted to announce that we have been successful in the tender process to provide a commissioned service on behalf of Cafcass offering Contact Centre Interventions. The Children and Family Court Advisory and Support Service (CAFCASS) is a non-departmental public body in England set up to promote the welfare of children and families involved in family court. It was formed in April 2001 under the provisions of the Criminal Justice and Court Services Act 2000 and is accountable to Parliament through the Ministry of Justice. Cafcass is independent of the courts, social services, education, health authorities and all similar agencies.
We have been supporting children and families for over 5 years arranging, supervising and supporting families and children who see one another using our Contact Centre facilities. Managed by Louise Galloway and supported by a team of trained and experienced Contact Centre supervising staff, all children and families have access to a wide range of resources and space that provides a safe and welcoming environment.
This new contract will run for 3 years from July 2nd 2018. We are so pleased to have been awarded the contract, demonstrating the value and professionalism our Centre upholds and acknowledging the excellent service we provide. Sarah Eardley, CEO: “The bid writing and tender is always a very difficult and lengthy process. However confident you are about the services and people involved, you are never sure what the outcome will be. Writing about the services we offer at HOPE was made easy because I know the team provides such a thorough and excellent service and we all work really hard to ensure all children and families are safe here. We are nonetheless absolutely delighted that Cafcass have appointed us to deliver the service in the Hereford/Worcester area from our centre in Bromyard. We look forward to working with them on providing the service and helping children and families at what can be a challenging time.”
