Welcome to the
Chiltern Child Contact Centre Website
The Chiltern Child Contact Centre, which is located in central Amersham, is a place for children to meet with parents with whom they no longer live after relationship breakdown.
Children who do not have access to both parents are prone to behavioural and emotional problems. In many cases they have low self-esteem and their performance at schools can suffer as well. When divorced or separated, parents have difficulty in communicating well.
Child Contact Centres provide a safe neutral place for children to meet the mother or father who no longer lives at home with them. We won’t take sides. We simply operate in the best interests of your child.
The Centres are equipped with your child in mind, providing toys, games and facilities that reflect the diverse needs of children affected by family breakdown.
Over four thousand volunteers and staff work in these Centres throughout the UK, and over twenty thousand children use them each year.
The Centres are overseen by the National Association of Child Contact Centres (NACCC).
Feedback from some of our families
‘Thank you all for your genuine care and time. It means a lot in so many ways.’
‘Many, many thanks for all the time and effort you volunteers put into keeping the Contact Centre going. Your efforts are appreciated.’
‘We wanted to thank all the volunteers who make it possible for the Contact Centre to exist in Chiltern. For my son, it was a lifeline to his own son – both of whom love each other very much.’

About our service
The Chiltern Child Contact Centre offers supported contact – that means it is suitable for families where no significant risk to the child or those around the child have been identified.
We welcome referrals made through a solicitor, CAFCASS officer, family mediator or social worker. And we also accept self-referrals using the National Association of Child Contact Centres (NACCC) online Self-Referral System.

We are open 1st and 3rd Saturday of each month: 9:30am – 2:30pm. We are located at Amersham Free Church, Woodside Rd, Amersham, Bucks. HP6 6AJ.
