Academy of Little Angels was established in May 2010 and we have been providing a, friendly service to children and families. Academy of Little Angels prides itself on providing a safe, friendly and warm environment in which parents and family members can enjoy private quality time for themselves and their children.
Thousands of children each year have no contact with their parents. At Academy of Little Angels we provide a comfortable and safe environment where children of separated families can meet and enjoy contact with one (or both) parents, and sometimes other family members. Academy of Little Angels provides both supervised and supported contact and works in partnership with CAFCASS, Fostering and Adoption agencies, Solicitors and Local Authorities.
Our fully trained staff have years of experience of working with children and families. Academy of Little Angels are also approved to provide a Parenting Information Programme (PIP) and we hold sessions on a weekly basis.
Parenting Information Programme, (PIP) courses are run on a regular basis to accommodate the increased number of court orders being made. The courses can either be self funded or an application can be made for the cost to be paid centrally via a "Hardship Certificate" or Legal Aid.
Hardship Certificate applications are available either from the CAFCASS website or from ourselves.
