The tender for new organisations wishing to deliver family mediation from February 2015 opened on 1 October 2014.
The deadline for tender responses is noon on 31 October 2014.
Further information is in the ‘Information For Applicants (IFA)’ document that governs this tender process.
Existing mediation providers who already hold a 2010 Standard Civil Contract to deliver mediation services don’t need to respond to this invitation.
However, there is a separate process for existing mediation providers wishing to open additional outreach locations. Applications for this must be received by noon on 31 October 2014.
Further information on the process, including how to apply, is available in the ‘existing provider additional outreach pro forma’.
