About the team
Centre for and Contact is founded by Candice Warner and has been in operation since 2016.
Candice is a devoted Christian, Wife and Mother and she believes that her sense of self, is shaped through relationship with others, much like the African philosophy of UBUNTU, ’I am, because you are’.
Her team has been uniquely put together, made up of a Child and Family Therapists, Clinical Social Workers, a TIR Counsellor, adding also her role as an Independent Social Worker and trained Mediator.
Together they consider the holistic well being of families and this means that interventions are characterised by the belief, that the parts of something are intimately connected and explicable only by reference to the whole. The team also provides Motivational Talks, and Pioneers and Facilitates Community Development Programmes such as their Family Strengthening Workshops run in various communities and organisations.
Centre for Care and Contact is committed, to providing the highest level of quality service and ensuring that fees are affordable and attainable for all.
Date: 30th September 2021
Presenting the Panel of speakers for the Webinar on 30 September 2021 at 13:00-14:30.
This meaningful conversation will be hosted by Candice Warner (Centre for Care and Contact) and Tarryn Lee Bell (The Bridge).
We believe it’s time to unpack the discourse of a ‘fatherless society’ and some of what we will discuss will be steered by the following themes:
1. Where have our Fathers gone?
2. Can a Mother play a dual role?
3. How separated parents can foster a healthy environment for their children.
4. Where to get support – i.e. meditation and counselling, legal aid, and support
We’ve invited some special guests to join us!
So if you’re a parent, professional in the field, a community member or practitioner then this is a conversation you must join in on!

Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS MEDIATION?
Mediation involves families in conflict working out arrangements for themselves and their children with the help of neutral and skilled mediators. The aim of mediation is to reach an agreement that is mutually acceptable to the parties within the broad range of that which a court would be likely to approve.
HOW LONG DOES MEDIATION TAKE?
WHAT PROBLEMS CAN BE BROUGHT TO MEDIATION?
* Arrangements which concern the children, such as drawing up a parenting plan which would include contact and care arrangements.
* Maintenance – child and spousal
* Property and financial matters.
The mediator/s help couples resolve the legal and financial issues as well as reach an agreement regarding arrangements for the children. The mediation process enables the couple to reach a lasting agreement and avoids the polarisation and hostility often caused by the divorce/separation.
