  • Volunteering with families

Hi, my name is Kerry and I work full time for Telford and Wrekin Council. For the last 21 years I have also volunteered on a Saturday afternoon for Shropshire Child Contact Centres.

Child Contact Centres provide a safe, friendly and neutral environment where children can meet a parent or other family members they might not otherwise see. 

I volunteer to make a difference to children’s lives. I believe children should be able to have contact with both parents/granparents/siblings in a safe place and by facilitating supported contact, we can do this.

Being a volunteer I make a difference, we are stepping stone to improving relationships which I feel proud of. Ongoing training ensures my skills and knowledge are up to date and volunteering supports my personal and professional development.
