Welcome to Changing Futures North East | Family Mediation and Support

Changing Futures North East believes in the importance and value of healthy relationships:

  • between individuals
  • within families
  • in communities
  • in organisations and teams

We believe relationships really do matter! We provide support to children and families mainly across Hartlepool, Middleborough, Stockton, Middlesbrough and East Durham. This includes:

  • access to FREE legally aided Mediation and heavily discounted private mediation.
  • Mentoring
  • Helping children in care
  • Supporting children’s education
  • Headland children and youth clubs

All of our work is focused on helping people build relationships in some way, from making new friends to reducing conflict. We also try to make sure that all our services:

  • Give the right help, at the right time, and as soon as we can so things don’t get worse.
  • Help individuals to unlock their potential, work out what they want to do and help them make the changes they think are important. We want to help people help themselves.
  • Keep children and adults safe. We operate safeguarding policies and ensure all staff and volunteers are vetted, including with an Enhanced DBS where they work with children.

The work we do is made possible by our fantastic team of over 50 volunteers. If you would like to help make a difference to the lives of children and young people, click here!
