The Knock Child Contact Centre was established in 1999. We are a voluntary organisation overseen by a board of directors and run by a part-time Coordinator & Deputy Coordinator & Team Leader, with a team of trained, committed volunteers who are impartial and sensitive to the needs of the families.
Before Volunteers start in the Centre, they must provide two referees and undergo an AccessNI police check.
We have a coffee bar area where tea, coffee, soft drinks, fruit, toasted pancakes and sweets can be bought at reasonable prices. Table games, craft materials and xbox are also available. The pool table is popular with children and parents. and we also have a carpeted room which is suitable for babies and toddlers.
A waiting room is available upstairs where those bringing children can wait while the children enjoy their contact downstairs. The parents/adults do not have to meet if they don’t want to.
For disability access we have a ramp to our front door and a disabled toilet.
