Extension of £500 Family Mediation Voucher Scheme

06 Sep 2021

The government has extended its £500 Family Mediation voucher scheme to help separated families who need to make arrangements for children.

The scheme provides contributions of up to £500 per family, to resolve issues relating to children following parental separation. Mediation must be provided by Family Mediation Council Accredited (FMCA) mediators – Laura Bell at Trethowans can assist you in the process.

The Ministry of Justice has announced that it has made a further £800,000 available to distribute in family mediation vouchers.

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.

Family mediation is a proven cost-effective way to resolve differences following separation.

Family mediator Laura Bell FMCA, from Trethowans said: “After what has been a challenging couple of years for many, this continues to be a welcome opportunity for more clients to explore the benefits of mediation. I am proud to be part of this scheme, to help my clients reach child-focused resolutions for their family”.

If you would like to find out more and to take advantage of the £500 voucher towards mediation services, please contact Laura Bell on 01962 673 873 or email  laura.bell@trethowans.com.
