Jigsaw Contact Centre

Monday - Saturday & Online

Jigsaw: The essential information 

Main feedback reviews:

St Michael’s is “very quick to respond and help to solve any issues. Everyone is very friendly and the children enjoy the consistency of staff who know them well."

“You can tell it’s more than a job to them, you can feel the warmth and so can the kids. At other centres, you go in, and they’re like ”Yeah, sign-in”, and that’s it. At St Michael's, it seems like a small family.”


What is it?

Our 'Jigsaw' contact centre is a child-friendly, self-contained family space in South London (Streatham). This service helps separated parents and children build a stronger and healthier relationship. We aim to ensure both the child and parents have a good experience during contact and to make it as easy as possible for everyone. .

"I called to set up contact.  It was very easy and after the initial interview meeting, I was offered contact practically immediately." Dad
