Supporting Children and Families

One Stop For Families

Family Mediation

The South London Family Centre provides a confidential, voluntary, "without prejudice" process where a neutral third party (The Mediator) helps you to discuss and negotiate all issues surrounding your divorce or separation, among others. Current studies show that mediation improves communication and helps you build for the future in your new circumstances. Mediation can also help your children keep their family relationship.

Child Contact Centre

Our Child Contact Centre is a safe, friendly and neutral place where children of separated families can spend time with one or both parents and sometimes other family members. Our centre is a child-centred environment where we have toys, games and facilities that reflect the diverse needs of children affected by family breakdown.


Our Counselling Service is here to help our clients with a variety of problems. More often than not, it helps to talk to someone neutral who is not a family member or a friend. The centre’s Counsellors aim to be as understanding as they can of the issues and feelings you bring. Counselling is a process of helping you explore and express your thoughts, feelings and behavior. Doing this usually brings relief and may enable you to make some changes in your life, or it may help you deal more effectively with things that cannot be changed.

Home and School Mediation

The South London Family Centre’s Home School Mediators aim to support children, young people and their families, who are experiencing difficulties within the Educational system. The Home School Mediation started due to the high level of fixed and permanent exclusion of black children especially boys, parents not knowing what to do and feeling lost within the educational systems, left them feeling vulnerable, stressful, anxious and frustrated about their child/children future.
