About Us

Mediation MK is a charity which has been operating since 1989 based in Milton Keynes.

The team is headed by our Service Director Martin Ellis. The Office Manager is Shirley Welborn who works with our administrator Hazel Noël. Our mediators are Louise Carrington-Dye, Laura Mackey, Richard Hill and Andre Brady. The Professional Practice Consultant is Louise Carrington-Dye.

Our primary role is to provide a mediation service for adults in Milton Keynes and Northampton. Our service can help if your relationship has broken down and you need to sort out practical issues such as:

  • Arrangements for children
  • Child maintenance payments
  • Sharing finances (e.g. house, savings, pension)
  • Dealing with any debts.

Our services are free to those who are eligible for Legal Aid. Fees apply for all others, assessed according to income levels.

Family disputes that are resolved through mediation are cheaper, quicker and less acrimonious than those that are settled through the Courts.
