About Glamorgan House Family Development Centre

The TeamChantal Patel (Chairwoman) & Ray Singh (Manager)Glamorgan House Family Development Centre is an accredited children’s contact Centre, providing various services to vulnerable families undergoing some of the most distressed periods in their lives.

Each situation is unique and we cater to all circumstances by offering three different types of contact; supported, supervised and hand over services. Working closely with mediation services, we encourage improved relations between the parents and to focus on the best interests of their child. In the midst of separation, divorce, family conflict and abuse, it is vital to us as a children’s centre to deliver safety, neutrality, support and a relaxed atmosphere.

The core values of Glamorgan House Family Development Centre are to provide a means for growth of meaningful relationships between children and their estranged family member and guide practical nd workable arrangements for contact in the future.

The centre opened in June 2012 and we currently have 17 volunteers to help in the running of the centre. All volunteers are trained to a high standard to ensure that we are able to offer all our clients the best possible service. Confidence is built by all clients, volunteers and staff who are involved in the centre through courses undertaken and sessions carried out.
