An additional £800,000 in funding was announced over the weekend for the Government’s family mediation scheme aimed at solving parental disputes away from court. The scheme provides separating couples with a £500 voucher for mediation services and was initially launched back in March 2021.
Government figures have shown that around 130 vouchers are used each week, with up to three-quarters of participants reaching a full or partial agreement. It is intended the additional funding will help a further 2,000 families.
