Family mediation supports parents and children through family change and disruption, particularly where this has occurred as a result of separation, divorce or family restructuring.
Family mediation helps families in conflict to communicate more effectively with one another and to consider options that will help them to work through their differences.
Family mediation helps parents to make their own arrangements and plans for the future, particularly regarding their children. The support and help provided by family mediation services can involve:
- helping families to communicate and reduce conflict, through mediation
- facilitating contact between children and a parent who no longer lives with them
- groups for adults and children affected by separation or divorce
Family mediation services in Scotland are affiliated to Relationships Scotland, a registered charity. Our office is in central Edinburgh and there are mediation services located in all parts of mainland and island Scotland.
