Creating Paths to Family Justice

About the project

The Creating Paths to Family Justice project  aims to develop 'real world' impact from the Mapping Paths to Family Justice project on out of court  family dispute resolution concluded in 2014.  Working with Exeter academic colleagues Janet Smithson, and Jan Ewing and Rosemary Hunter (Queen Mary University, London), the project is collaborating with partner agencies Relate, Ministry of Justice, Department for Work and Pensions, Family Mediation Council, Resolution and CAFCASS to draw on research findings to develop online and offline family mediation and information services.
