Family Mediation Grampian is for parents whose relationship is over. Family Mediation helps parents, whether they have never lived together, are considering separating, recently separated, divorced, or have been apart for some time, to negotiate or re-negotiate arrangements for their children.
Family Mediation Grampian is a local voluntary organisation originally set up in the Aberdeen area in 1986 and affiliated to Family Mediation Scotland. There are Contact Centres in Peterhead, Fraserburgh, Elgin and Banff, where children can build or maintain a relationship with their absent parent or significant family member. The Centres are open on a Saturday and are provided at no cost to users.
The service provides trained mediators who meet the parents or extended family in a neutral environment to help them work out arrangements or financial issues for their children. Family mediators are trained professionals who have a full recognition of the complexity of the issues involved in separation and divorce. All mediators are members of the UK College of Family Mediators.
