We are taking part in the new Family Mediation Voucher Scheme

We are pleased to announce our participation in the Family Mediation Voucher Scheme.Family mediation is a cost-effective way to resolve differences following separation. The new scheme launches on 1 April 2021 and entitles eligible couples to receive a £500 voucher towards the costs of family mediation in cases concerning children. It is designed to help families resolve issues for themselves, without having to go to court.

Eligibility is assessed at a Mediation Information and Assessment Meeting (MIAMS) which is charged at £110 + VAT per person. There is no financial eligibility assessment. The new scheme means that both eligible parties can receive their first joint session at no cost and the second session is subsidised. Funding is limited so each case is dealt with on a first come first served basis.

We have been offering mediations services safely throughout lock down, mostly online. To find out more about family mediation, the new voucher scheme and whether you might qualify for legal aid funded mediation, please email us at mediation@wilkinsonwoodward.co.uk or call our Family teams in:
