Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
i shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first
is your daughter willing to facilitate contact if it can be done safely?
i'm not certain yet, i think at the moment it's fairly early days and she may not be very keen yet but i think she probably will eventually
Then there is no reason why she should not simply offer contact at a local contact centre (www.naccc.org.uk) subject to the agreement that the child will not be removed from the Centre.
This will show that your daughter is able to prioritise the need of the child for contact despite the circumstances in which she finds herself.
There is no need to wait for a court application to offer this
thanks, XXXXX XXXXX but i'm not quite sure what you mean by a local contact centre - presumably not near the refuge since it is important to keep its whereabouts secret
She can choose a Contact Centre from the website that is convenient for them both
OK. Sorry to be awkward but supposing i was wrong and she remains opposed to the whole idea - which i think is her tendency at the moment
