Our services support families who are separating or divorcing on an individual basis, according to their needs. We offer a free intake appointment to everyone who contacts us. We accept legal, self and professional referrals.
Family Mediation is a neutral and supportive opportunity for parents to discuss plans regarding their children and resolve conflicts with the help of trained and experienced family mediators.
We have three Contact Centres (Alloa, Falkirk and Stirling) where we offer supervised, and supported contact for children to see the parent they do not live with. Parents may also use the centres as a handover and return meeting space.
The PAP Programme is a workshop offered to parents in groups or on an individual basis online. PAP helps parents to understand, prepare for and respond to some of the difficult issues and conversations that may come up for them and their children. If anyone is interested in doing the programme, please call 01786 472 984 or use the contact form on the website. Participants do not have to be using family mediation or child contact centres to avail of this workshop.

Arranging online family mediation
Use the online form on the Contact Us section of the website or telephone 01786 472 984.
An individual intake appointment will then be arranged for you by telephone to talk through your situation. If it is appropriate to do so, the Intake Worker will explain what to expect from your online mediation session.
Please note that an intake appointment is free of charge, however, a first joint mediation session will cost £65 each (which includes a set up fee) and subsequent mediation meetings will cost £35 each. In some cases, legal aid may cover these costs. If you would have difficulty paying these charges, please let us know. We can offer different payment options. No client will be denied use of the service due to an inability to pay.
