Professional briefing on family mediation in Northern Ireland: research and practice

Author : Jane Glover (2007)

Price : Free

This briefing outlines the findings from an evaluation of Newry Family Resource Centre's mediation service.

The mediation service offers separating couples the opportunity to reach a shared agreement about child contact and residence that is in the best interests of their child. This briefing provides robust evidence that the mediation service is performing well above the national mean, and quantifies the savings in social work time that the mediation service offers when compared to a full court hearing. Barnardo's is currently a small player in the mediation arena but this evaluation makes a compelling case for extension of the work across Northern Ireland.
