What is TCCC?

The Tarka Child Contact Centre is holds the contact sessions at the Torridge Children's Centre, Victoria Park, Kingsley Road, Bideford. EX39 2QQ.

The Centre provides excellent facilities and toys for children from birth to 16 years.  These include an outside play area with sandpit, water play, ride on toys, and balls, and indoor playrooms offering a home corner, book corner, baby area, soft play, and a well-stocked toy cupboard providing additional toys for imaginative play.  Additional games and toys are also provided, which are appropriate for older children.  

The Tarka Child Contact Centre offers a safe, friendly and neutral place where children of separated families can spend time with the absentee parents, and sometimes other family members, when there is no other viable option.  The Centre is easily accessible, in pleasant surroundings, with safe play facilities and friendly staff.  

TCCC is now open however due to covid our risk assessments have changed and we can only have a limited number of families within the centre. We are currently at full capacity.Please feel free to enquire about contact  as there is now a waiting list for new referrals.


Stay safe and please remember there are still safe ways you can maintain your child’s contact (Face Time, 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
