Family Mediation Helpline

Family Mediation Helpline Yesterday Family Justice Minister Harriet Harman launched the Family Mediation Helpline. The helpline, which has been operating on a trial basis since January, aims to inform separating couples of mediation, help them decide whether mediation is appropriate for them and assist them in finding a local mediator. The helpline is available by calling 0845 60 26 627, or by visiting the website (link above). Up until the end of April the helpline received some 435 calls and made some 109 referrals to mediators, with the volume of calls expected to increase substantially now that the helpline has been officially launched. It will certainly be a useful place to direct clients interested in mediation.
