Welcome to the Family Mediation Council’s website
The Family Mediation Council was established in October 2007 and works for greater public awareness of and access to family mediation. It works closely with the Legal Services Commission and Ministry of Justice on family mediation related projects. The Family Mediation Council acts as a common platform for family mediation's national organisations to negotiate with government and other interests. It also works to ensure that information regarding mediation is collated and made more readily available.
The Family Mediation Council's members are the national family mediation organisations in England and Wales, all of which ensure their family mediators work to agreed minimum professional and training standards. For a list of member organisations, click here.
