Found out this week that public funding for mediation is available and although you may not be entitled to legal aid you may be entitled to public funding for mediation
Public funding does not count capital when considering eligibility for it, only income.
Anyone that is considering mediation, it is also worth realising that there are a lot of mediators out there, some good some not. You need to take great care when choosing a mediator, in the same way you should when choosing a solicitor.
Some mediators, however, do not accept public funding, but please also bear in mind that this does not mean they are no good or greedy some have genuine reasons why this is the case.
