17 – 21 January 2022 is Family Mediation Week: an opportunity for everybody to learn more about Family Mediation, a process in which in which an independent, professionally-trained mediator helps you work out arrangements for children and finances following separation.

Emin Read is supporting Family Mediation Week to raise awareness of the benefits of family mediation, which can help ex-partners agree what works for them, whilst avoiding the court process with all the stress, delay and cost that that can bring.

The Family Mediation service operates for appointments at their their offices in Twickenham, Eastbourne and Battle, and also supports remote sessions for parties where appropriate (such as where working commitments can make attending appointments tricky, or health issues make this a challenge).

Parents interested in finding out more about mediation can also watch a free, online event with parenting expert Sue Atkins in discussion with Sarah Manning (a Mediator accredited by the Family Mediation Council), on the morning of Wednesday 19 January. In addition, the Family Mediation Council has organised a series of free, online events for professionals who work with families. The full programme of events, and details of how to sign up, are available on the Family Mediation Council website.
