If you are on a low income and / or receive welfare benefits, Clarity Works offers legally aided mediation which means that the Legal Aid Agency (LAA) will pay your mediation fees.

Clarity Works has a contract with the Legal Aid Agency, so if you are on a low income or claiming welfare benefits such as Income Support, Universal Credit, Employment Support Allowance, you may be entitled to mediation free of charge. Where one party is granted legally aided mediation (free mediation), the other party will benefit also by receiving their initial meeting, the Mediation Information and Assessment Meeting (MIAM) and the first mediation session at no cost, even if they themselves are not eligible for legally aided mediation
If you would like to be considered for legally aided mediation, a mediator will assess your eligibility during a MIAM.
Many solicitors are no longer able to offer Legal Aid to resolve family matters, therefore mediation is now the main source of government funding for resolving family problems.
