Contacts and Family Mediation

At Donnington Doorstep we can act as a location for contacts between separated carers and children. Our staff work carefully and sensitively to support each contact ensuring that the child’s experience is always prioritised and kept as the focus of the event. We facilitate handovers, an experience that can be awkward or uncomfortable for the parties involved.

Families who use this service also benefit from the range of other services provided at our family drop-in and we work hard to encourage positive outcomes for children in these difficult situations.


"All of the [staff] were very helpful and I am really grateful to all of you for the advice and support that helped me re-establish my relation with [my son]."
Feedback from a parent

Doorstep is a fantastic centre. Out of all the 'stay and play' centres this has to be one of the most enriching. The longer opening hours make it unique as other centres have very limited sessions and times. Long live Doorstep!
