Our services For Children & Young People

Children’s contact service
- The Children’s Contact Service (CCS) supports families who are having difficulties resolving conflict around their children spending time with each parent. CCS facilitates contact between children and their separated parents, especially where there has been limited or no contact with a parent/carer

Child informed practice
- Child informed practice brings children’s views, perspectives and issues related to their wellbeing into the family mediation process. Hearing how children are experiencing the changes in their family and life allows parents to think about arrangements that will work best for their children
