    Family Mediation Voucher Scheme

    The Government has set up a time-limited voucher scheme in response to Covid-19 to  encourage more people to consider mediation as a means of resolving their disputes, where appropriate. To support this, a financial contribution of up to £500 towards the costs of mediation relating to children will be provided, if eligible.

    Only mediators authorised by the Family Mediation Council (FMC) are taking part in the voucher scheme. Find out more here.

    Family mediators are working online to help you if you face divorce or separation during the coronavirus pandemic. Family mediation is quicker and less stressful than going to court and is cheaper than being legally represented too. You can find a mediator offering an online service here.
