Family Mediation Voucher Scheme

Consilia Mediation is proud to be taking part in the Government-funded family mediation voucher scheme worth up to £500 per family.

Family mediation is a process in which an independent, professionally trained mediator helps parents work out arrangements for their children and/or finances following separation. Mediation can also be helpful when previous child arrangements need to be reviewed, particularly as children get older and their needs change.

What Is The Mediation Voucher Scheme?

The family mediation voucher scheme is a time-limited scheme, designed to support parties who may be able to resolve their family law disputes outside of court. The Government has set up the scheme in response to Covid-19 to support recovery in the family court and to encourage more people to consider mediation as a means of resolving their disputes, where appropriate.

The scheme will offer mediation participants a financial contribution of up to £500 per family towards the total costs of their mediation concerning arrangements for their children.

What About Eligibility?

Families will be eligible for the voucher scheme where their mediation concerns arrangements for children. An individual’s income will not be a deciding factor which means anyone who wishes to mediate in connection with a matter concerning children will be eligible.

What Will The Voucher Cover?

The voucher will not cover the cost of your Mediation Information and Assessment Meeting (MIAM), but will cover the cost of any subsequent mediation between both parties up to the value of £500 inc. VAT.

When Does The Scheme Start And How Long Does It Run For?

Participants must have attended a MIAM on or after 26th March 2021 to apply for a voucher towards any mediation that follows. The scheme will run until all the funds have been used so this will be a first-come, first-serve basis.
