Who we help


Specialising in Mediation for over 35 years. All our mediators are accredited with the Family Mediation Council and we offer Legal Aid.

Supporting families through change

Cambridge Family Mediation Service has been supporting families through change for over 30 years.

We offer a free service for Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) dispute resolution and mediation. This service is for parents, carers and young people in Cambridgeshire.

Our mediators:
Our team of mediators come from a variety of professional backgrounds and have a wealth of skills and experience in mediation and conflict resolution.  All of our mediators are Family Mediation Council Accredited (i.e. hold FMCA status) and are therefore qualified to conduct Mediation Information and Assessment Meetings (MIAMs) and complete the mediator part of court forms when a client intends to make an application regarding a family matter. All our mediators are fully qualified to carry out both privately and publicly funded (legally aided) mediation. You can read more about them here.

Our family worker:
Our family worker is a fully qualified family therapist who is a member of the UK Council for Psychotherapy.

Our service is:
Confidential – Nothing you say is passed on to anyone without your consent.  However, if there are significant concerns about the wellbeing and safety of children or adults, the appropriate agency will be contacted.

Flexible – Alongside usual office hours, we also offer evening and Saturday appointments by arrangement.

Professional – All our services are run by highly qualified practitioners with extensive experience of supporting families through change.

Trusted – Over the last 30 years, we have established a local and national reputation for offering quality services that work. We are contracted by the Legal Services Commission to provide publicly funded mediation. In 2011 we won the Avril Reid Award for Innovation from National Family Mediation.
