We provide a professional and impartial service affording respect to all parties.

We operate in a completely fair and open setting.

Mediation Voucher Scheme

The Ministry of Justice has developed a mediation voucher scheme, whereby a contribution of up to £500 per case/family to the mediation costs of a child arrangements case will be offered, encouraging people to seek to resolve their disputes outside of court where appropriate to do so.

This does not help us to provide Legal Aid services, but can assist the other party or help those who fall outside the means testing of Legal Aid.

This is a limited pot - so please contact us asap to take advantage of this Government funded scheme.
