About Negotiators Family Centre
Who are we?
Negotiators Family Centre Limited, formerly known as Negotiators Limited was formed in 2007, with the belief that the voice of the child is paramount and that every child has the right, to be protected and to participate in decisions pertaining to their life, and to expect the adults involved in their care to ensure that appropriate provisions are put in place to meet their needs within the children and family’s industry. Whilst this has been the primary focus of Negotiators Limited, the journey in supporting children and their families has driven Negotiators Limited, to provide bespoke services to the parents of these children or the adults caring for these children in the Lewisham and Croydon Area, who are disadvantaged and from the BAME community, especially since Covid 19 has brought further challenges to these families.
