TNS staff will be responsible for observing and recording supervised contact between a child or children and a non-resident parent. Notes will be written by hand during each session which can be between 1 and 6 hours and a report can be provided as part of the service. Staff have good observational and writing skills and a clear understanding of child safeguarding and stages of child development. We work directly with children, foster carers, resident and non-resident parents to promote meaningful and safe contact time.
