Family Mediation Week – 17-21 January 2022
We are proud to support Family Mediation Week from 17-21 January 2022 and raise awareness of the benefits of mediation.
Family mediation is a process in which an independent, professionally trained mediator helps parents work out arrangements for children and finances following separation. Mediation can also be helpful when previous child arrangements need to change, particularly as children grow up.
“In a recent survey*, two thirds of separated parents said they lacked help or advice about how to put their children first when they separated from their partner. Mediation not only helps parents reach important agreements about day to day living arrangements or financial arrangements for children, but also helps to support parents by discussing wider issues and signposting them to valuable third party resources which the family as a whole can benefit from”.
Trethowans continue to promote and be part of the Family Mediation Voucher Scheme, which makes mediation even more accessible and affordable, at a time when families are facing more financial and emotional pressure than ever before.
If you would like to find out more and to take advantage of the £500 voucher towards mediation services, please contact our Family Mediation Services team here or for further information contact us on 0800 2800 421 or click here.
