About Us

Surrey Mediation Service is a College of Mediators Affiliated Organisation. This helps to illustrate our commitment, as a company, to the College's policies and Code of Practice. All our mediators are registered with the Family Mediation Council and are accredited family mediators or working towards their accreditation. Due to expansion we now trade as Mediate UK nationally and you can see our new website here

Our History

Surrey Mediation Service was founded in 2010 to help the many people who were not eligible for legal aid and could not afford to spend thousands on expensive solicitor or mediation fees.

Since then we have grown to become Surrey's most innovative and highly rated mediation service. For example we have introduced independent barrister reviews to report on your case when mediation has broken or slowed down.

At £96 per person per hour, we are amongst the best value mediation services in the South East of England and we keep our costs low to encourage as many people as possible to use mediation to resolve their issues, rather than endure the expense of going to court. Using our service saves the average client £772 on their mediation fees, based on a typical 4 sessions of joint mediation.

We were the first company in the UK to offer combined mediation and legal packages to ensure clients can keep control of the costs of their dispute. Our divorce lawyers and family law solicitors are members of Resolution, have won awards for their service and are highly experienced in all areas of family law.
