Oxfordshire Family Mediation

Oxfordshire Family Mediation (OFM) supports adults, children and young people who are struggling due to the breakup of a marriage and/or family. We are particularly committed to safeguarding the physical and mental health of children and young people whose parents have separated or divorced.

Founded 1989

  • Mission statement

    To be Oxfordshire’s leading provider of help and support to families that are suffering due to divorce or separation.

    Through mediation for couples, mediation for families, Separated Parents Information Programmes (SPIPs), Mediation Information and Assessment Meetings (MIAMs) and Children’s Voice we seek to provide the most appropriate support to those struggling due to divorce or separation.

    We aim to help separating couples make practical decision about long term arrangements for their family, property and finances.

    We help children and young people through Children’s Voice; a one-to-one listening service which provides a neutral space in which they can explore their feelings and develop positive coping mechanisms.

    We continue to invest in our Mediators and specialist Children’s Workers so that they are able to provide a continuous, consistent service of care.

    We continue to work closely with Social Services, CAMHS, Early Intervention Hubs, CAFCASS, GPs, schools, judges, magistrates and legal advisors, who understand the issues surrounding divorce and value the work that we do.

    We strive to continually grow and develop in order to safeguard the physical and mental health of more Oxfordshire adults, children and young people who are not coping with their family’s breakup.
