Family Mediation Project

Dublin Community Mediation is host to The Family Mediation project. It is a not-for-profit  research initiative, by Waterford Institute of Technology, based on a family mediation model developed by Dr Roisin O’ Shea of Arc Mediation.

The project offers means-tested family mediation dealing with guardianship, parenting (access), custody and maintenance, prioritising the best interests of children, and meeting children to hear their views.

  • To be eligible, participants must each have a gross income of less than €22,000, and have less than €5,000 in savings.
