Family group rises from the ashes of old organisation

An organisation which aims to provide a safe and secure service for separated families has launched after the closure of a similar service last year.

East Northants Child Contact Service has been set up by Pam Housman, Sandra Wilson and Jeanette Madams and Paula Lloyd.

Last year, Family Action In our Region (FAIR), which provided a similar service closed down.

The group of four said they wanted to carry on the good work the child contact element of the previous organisation had carried out.

They said “We set up very quickly so that the families could be seamlessly transferred from one organisation to another. We had support from FAIR with advice and office equipment.

“We approached premises locally to be a venue and were happy to accept the offer from Highfield Baptist Community Church to have our Child Contact Centre at their hall on two Saturdays a month, we also use the Full Gospel Church premises during the week during the afternoons when needed.”
