Dads' Space/Mums' Space

The domestic violence association Respect,recently launched a virtual child contact centre. The service is not just for those where there are risks, it may also be used to to enhance existing contact or when parents live a distance apart or when work commitments make contact difficult. There are two sites, Dads' Space 1-2-1 and Mum's Space 1-2-1 and they allow separated parents and children to share photos, email, chat, send gifts and cards, and play games online.

At the National Family Picnic taking place in Regents Park on 25th May awards, consisting of Family of the Year (in association with National Family Week), Mum of the Year (in association Mumsnet) and Dad of the Year (in association with Dads-Space), are to be presented. Gordon Brown has recorded this message of support.

At the moment the service only works through a referrals process and for more information about the service , or to make a referral, you can write to the Dads’ Space 1-2-1 Team at:
