Family Mediation

We support parents, children, young people and the wider family through family change and disruption, particularly where this has occurred as a result of separation, divorce or family restructuring. Mediation services are located in all parts of mainland and island Scotland.

The aim of mediation is to improve communication, reduce conflict and to agree on practical, workable arrangements for the future, taking into account children’s views, needs and feelings. Our focus is on putting children’s needs first and making separation less stressful for everyone.

Although mediation is primarily for parents whose relationship is over, it’s for all sorts of families – married or unmarried, divorced, separated or never having lived together, younger or older – and for anyone in your family.  Parents, grandparents, stepparents, children and young people can all participate in family mediation.

Conflict is normal in families, and it can arise for a number of different reasons.  Sometimes it helps to get some extra support to find a good way forward. We offer a range of other Family Support  services.
