Mediation key for warring families

Alan Eccles, Chief Executive of the Office of the Public Guardian, has endorsed a pilot scheme for mediators to become involved with warring families in Court of Protection disputes. The scheme "attempts to put things back together again " in order to "honour the wishes of the donor" rather than imposing a local authority or panel deputy on a family to manage the financial and personal affairs of their incapacitated family member.

This seems a sensible step forward to try and eliminate the need for costly Court of Protection hearings where everyone loses, particularly the incapacitated family member who usually bears the burden of everyone's costs.hat's this item about?
