Set to be finalised on 3 July, Tara Weir of Family First Mediation and Dispute Resolution has acquired The Mediation Centre, which is now set to undergo significant growth and evolution.

According to The Mediation Centre, the strategic decision to sell the business came after careful consideration of market dynamics and growth opportunities. Joining forces with Family First Mediation and Dispute Resolution is also set to bring enhanced resources, expertise, and synergies to The Mediation Centre.


Outgoing director Amanda Little said this move would mark a significant milestone in The Mediation Centre’s journey.

“The Mediation Centre is proud of the accomplishments that we have achieved over the last decade,” she said.

“As an innovator in the FDR field, we have always been at the front end of change and innovation within the space. It is now time to hand the reins over to Tara Weir. This sale represents a new chapter for the company, and we are excited about the opportunities it presents for families going through relationship breakdowns. We are confident that Tara Weir is the ideal partner to take The Mediation Centre to the next level.”

Commenting on the acquisition, Ms Weir added that she is “thrilled” to be taking over and would “do so with great respect and admiration for what The Mediation Centre has achieved over the years”.

“Having worked with families experiencing relationship breakdowns for many years, I am passionate about providing the very best opportunities for early resolution through mediation and other alternate dispute resolution processes,” she said.

“With specialist training in child consultation and parenting coordination and experience working in both the community sector and private practice, my aim is to grow and enhance the services offered by The Mediation Centre to further support separated families. I know how much The Mediation Centre has meant to Amanda, and I am honoured that she is entrusting me with propelling its growth and am looking forward to this next chapter.”
