I just wanted to update you on the situation with regard to Family Mediation Central Scotland (FMCS).
Although, staff cannot meet with clients face-to-face, we can offer online mediation as well as our digital post box service (see below). This could be for clients who just want make arrangements via FMCS for indirect contact with children, for example, exchanging photos or messages, the idea being that my colleagues and I could act as go-betweens. I appreciate the importance of trying to maintain at least some family connections during this difficult time when the service is suspended.
If anyone is interested in the above, please email me by return and I will arrange a convenient time to call you.
Our telephone line (01786-472984) is still operational for any enquiries or to make a telephone appointment. If you would like to leave a message, a member of staff will call you back.
I understand that there has been a drastic change in the way we are able to provide our service to you, and I thank you for bearing with us at this challenging time for us all.
The Service Manager
With the present Covid-19 social distancing measures in place, it may be more difficult for children to keep in contact with parents or other family members they do not live with. For parents who do not have direct contact with one another, we can provide a digital post box service to keep parents updated as to how their child is during the current restrictions.
