We published a headline intentions document on 27 August 2014 which sets out our interim approach for family services.
This follows the recommendations of the Family Mediation Taskforce. As a result we are now considering our long-term approach to tenders for family mediation services.
The headline intentions document includes:
- extending existing mediation contracts by 12 months to 31 October 2016
- inviting expressions of interest from existing providers for new outreach locations
- opening a tender process giving new organisations the chance to provide publicly funded family mediation services while the long-term tender approach is developed
You can find the headline intentions document on the 2015 Mediation Tender page – see below.
Keep an eye on this page for more information on the tender and expressions of interest processes when it becomes available.
