Family Mediator

To carry out mediation between family members, between partners and/or parents and children where a difference of opinion cannot be resolved amicably. To provide a neutral environment, give both parties the opportunity to put their side across and then look for solutions or compromises that both will find acceptable. The mediator will be impartial and non-judgmental, his/her only objective to resolve conflict, so that both parties come away with a better deal.


A kind heart and common sense are essential in this role.  Your own transport is an advantage, as some weekday availability is necessary.

An enhanced DBS and references will be required.

Training is provided.
