Family Mediation Partners



Dialogue First is a small enterprise that has joined forces with major employers, EAP providers, national charities and family law professionals, to offer a common sense way to help separating families reach agreement.




The Family Mediation Team UK is a not-for-profit organisation, which specialises in bringing together the right family professionals including mediators, lawyers, financial experts, child experts, counselors and therapists for each separating couple, as efficient multi-disciplinary family support teams.




This is a web site and place for young people in separating families to hear from others who have been there.

Compass Resolution is one of the Founding Partners and fund raisers for KidsintheMiddle which provides an online support platform for children from separated families.



Voices in the middle
1 in 3 young people experience their parents separating. Voices in the Middle are asking young people who have experienced the separation of their parents to tell their stories and offer advice to other young people in the same situation.



Help and support for separated families(2)

This website brings together an extensive range of essential web resources to help and support the separating couple through divorce and separation.

You mediator will signpost you to useful areas of the site relevant to your needs at the time.

Compass Resolution was the third mediation organisation in the country to achieve the Help and Support for Separated Families kite mark setting it apart from many other mediation organisations.

The HSSF Mark is awarded to organisations who demonstrate that they:

– support collaboration between both parents

– help couples work together to resolve disputes (where it’s appropriate and safe to do so)

– encourage parents to focus on the interests of their children





Each Compass Resolution mediator is an accredited member of one or both of these organisations which provides the overall standards for its membership organisations including Resolution, FMA and the UK College of Mediators.
