  • the legal and historical context in which decisions about contact are made
  • the purpose of contact
  • the importance of identity for participants and their children
  • how increasing your knowledge and understanding about contact can improve contact arrangements for the benefit of our children
  • the experience of contact from the perspective of the child, the birth family and adoptive parents
