 What is Family Mediation Week?

Welcome to Family Mediation Week -17 -21 January 2022

Organised by the Family Mediation Council (FMC), Family Mediation Week
(17th – 21st January 2022) is an opportunity to raise awareness of family
mediation and its benefits to separating families. Our aim is to let more people
know about the benefits of family mediation and encourage separating couples
to think about family mediation as a way of helping them take control, make
decisions together and build a positive future for their family.

Guide to getting involved





Many people contemplating separation or divorce believe it is inevitable that they will find themselves in court and, every year, thousands of families are torn apart by bitter court battles. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Family mediation has helped many divorcing parents build a constructive future for their family, with clear guidance about what the options are and without a court imposing decisions on them.

We want to help people who choose to separate understand that lawyers and courts aren’t their only divorce option, and also to let friends and family know that family mediation is an option they can suggest to someone close to them who is experiencing separation and doesn’t know where to go for help.

We continue to promote family mediation as a good way forward all year round, but Family Mediation Week is a really good way to focus the attention of the press and the public on the value of the service we offer.
