York Family Mediation Service moving to new offices

First published in

AN ORGANISATION which tries to help separating parents in York resolve their differences to lessen the trauma for their children was moving to a new home today after eight years at Holgate Villa in Holgate Road.

York Family Mediation Service is relocating to Bintay House in York Road, Acomb, the former offices of Sykes Lee & Brydson solicitors.

An associated Child Contact centre, which helps parents keep in touch and often re-establish a relationship with their children once the family has split up, will also have an office and a supervised contact room there as well.

A spokeswoman said the service had become very skilful in dealing with the difficulties of family breakdown.

“One of our founding principles was to offer people a cheaper way than the traditional adversarial, legal process and to this day we try and keep our charges to a minimum,” she said.

“Through mediation, we enable parents to begin to resolve their difficulties over plans for their children’s future, resulting in lessening the inevitable trauma which is part of any divorce or separation.”

For more information about the mediation service, phone 01904 646068, or the Child Contact Service can be phoned on 01904 639974.
