Bideford, North Devon

*****Unfortunately, due to the latest Government advice regarding the Corona Virus, Tarka Child Contact Centre (TCCC) must now temporarily close, with immediate effect.

There will be no-one manning the TCCC emails or telephone during this time, so please bear this in mind if you leave TCCC a message or send an email. TCCC’s re-opening date will be reviewed every 3-4 weeks and, again, will be dependent on Government advice. You will of course be updated.

Stay safe and please remember there are still safe ways you can maintain your child’s contact (FaceTime, letters, emails etc.)

Helping children to maintain their relationship with their absent parent through this difficult time is very important. It will also make the return to contact at TCCC easier for all parties.*****

With kind regards
TCCC Co-ordinator
