Independent Family Mediation Service

Consulting children and young people

17 September 2014

In his speech at the Voice of The Child Conference on 24 July 2014, Simon Hughes, Minister of State for Justice and Civil Liberties, announced his intended policy for all children of 10 and over involved in family proceedings to have the opportunity for access to the judge, in person or in other ways, and opportunities for consultation in mediation.  Studies of child-inclusive mediation in Australia, Canada and New Zealand indicate significant benefits and better outcomes for children and families, compared with child-focused mediation.

Beverly has been consulting directly with children and young people as part of the mediation process since 2004 - for more information see the Children and Young People Tab of this website.
