A nationwide mediation scheme for Deputies has gone live.

The scheme has the aim of mediating in cases where there are disputes, exploring if affected parties can come to an agreement before having to take the matter back to the Court to resolve.

The scheme will run for up to eighteen months, starting from the 1st October 2019.

This pilot scheme is not a formal OPG or Court scheme though it does run alongside the OPG Mediation project.
