What we offer
As a leader in family mediation provision over the last 20 years, our team Trish, Caroline, Jenny and Vivienne provide a high standard of service with care, efficiency and professionalism in both private and legal aid mediation, under the Legal Aid Mediation Quality Mark - a benchmark for standards in mediation. We offer appointments very quickly because we understand that issues relating to children need to be resolved without delay and if we can help parent to do this, we are also helping to make life better for children.
