If you are separating or divorcing, thinking about it, or want to look again at child arrangements made in the past, we can help.
Our mediators are fully qualified and accredited.
We want to help you build a better future for you and your family.
Family mediation works. Research shows it reduces conflict, speeds up the process of divorce and separation and helps to build a more stable future for families. Mediation is less upsetting for children and significantly less expensive than being represented in court.
We can help you:
- Talk to your ex about the things you need to sort out, even though it may be difficult
- Negotiate a fair financial settlement. We can help you untangle complex financial situations
- Develop a parenting plan which will suit you and your children’s changing needs
- Improve communication as separated co-parents
- See children separately so that their views are heard
- Complete financial disclosure and work alongside your legal adviser to achieve a financial order
- Assess you for Legal Aid. Those who qualify receive mediation free
As a not for profit organisation we strive to provide a high quality, affordable service for all of our clients.

Family mediation is an alternative to addressing matters in court which is expensive for all concerned both emotionally and financially. The chart below lays out some of the key differences between the court and mediation routes.
- No waiting lists
- Informal and confidential
- Deal with one mediator throughout
- People involved decide what is discussed
- The people involved make their own agreement, which can be made legally binding
- Both parties can gain something
- Cost effective.
- May take months to get a court date
- Deal with many different organisations
- Only legal issues are discussed
- Decisions are imposed by the court, and enforced by the court
- There is generally a winner and a loser
