New FMC Mediation Voucher Scheme

Back to news

As a mediator, or someone who works with mediators, we wanted to let you know about a new voucher scheme that may help some of your clients access mediation services.

The Family Mediation Council (FMC) is administering the scheme on behalf of the Ministry of Justice who have allocated £1m to provide vouchers, worth up to £500 per case, which will reduce the costs of mediation for some separating families.

Vouchers can be granted to families where participants have attended a pre-mediation meeting (MIAM) from 26 March onwards and will be paid directly to mediators who have registered to take part in the scheme.

Full details of the scheme, how to take part and how vouchers are allocated can be found on the FMC website.

If you have any questions about the scheme, please contact the FMC directly on the following email address:
