This week is #FamilyMediationWeek (from 16th to 20th January 2023). The week is organised by the Family Mediation Council, a not-for-profit organisation whose aim is to promote the use of family mediation for the benefit of the public. It is a week designed to raise awareness of the benefits of family mediation.
Family mediation is a process in which an independent, professionally trained mediator helps you to work out arrangements for children and finances following a separation, whilst avoiding the stress, delay and cost of court proceedings.
Parents seeking to make arrangements for their children can also benefit from the Ministry of Justice’s Family Mediation Voucher Scheme which meets up to £500 of mediation costs for families in need to discuss arrangements for children.

During #FamilyMediationWeek there will be free events about how family mediation can help if you are separating.
