The FMC is a not for profit organisation that maintains a professional register of family mediators.
It doesn’t provide mediation itself or recommend a particular provider.
All FMC Registered Mediators are trained to a set standard and:
- follow the FMC’s Code of Practice
- hold relevant insurance
- are required to carry out training and activities to ensure their continued professional development
- receive the appropriate supervision and support
- are required to have a complaints process.
The Family Mediation Standards Board (FMSB) is independent of the FMC and operates the FMC’s registration and accreditation processes. It also operates a complaints and disciplinary appeals process on behalf of the FMC. You can also find out more about our complaints and disciplinary appeals process here.
