TalkFIRST supports vulnerable and disadvantaged families in Wigan experiencing family conflict through person-centred mediation, conflict resolution and guidance. Their early intervention service prevents further deterioration of relationships and increases resilience. The charity’s mediation services are in high demand: 294 beneficiaries have accessed the programme since 2020. TalkFIRST will use The Fore’s funding to employ and train an additional Family Mediator who will enable the organisation to take on more referrals and maximise the potential of their earned income streams which will allow them to offer more low-cost services.
