Code of Practice and Guidance

As part of our commitment to maintaining the high standards of family mediation, the  Family Mediation Council ensures family mediators adhere to a Code of Practice.

This Code of Practice, updated by the FMC in November 2018, outlines the aims, objectives and scope of family mediation. The Code also details the general principles of family mediation as well as the training and standards which can be expected of all Family Mediation Council mediators. The updated Code of Practice can be found here.
