Family Court Support Service (County)

Support available for children and families in south Nottinghamshire: Ashfield, Broxtowe, Gedling, and Rushcliffe.

We know that understanding how the court system works can be confusing, particularly if English is not your first language or if you're going through this alone. That's why, in 2019, we established the Family Court Support Service. Here's how we can help:

  • Support for mothers and their children aged 4-18
  • Independent advice and information
  • Emotional and practical support for child contact cases
  • Advocacy and support during CAFCASS and court proceedings where there has been domestic abuse
  • Explain the process and advocate for the family’s wishes
  • Prepare children and mother for expectant contact with father
  • Complete safety planning and risk assessments for future contact

For more information and referrals please contact the children and teen team via email: [email protected] or phone: 0115 822 1777
