Sandra Fenn worked in various roles supporting children and family welfare across the public sector for more than 20 years before, as a Trustee of Reunite, she became a founding member of the working party convened to explore the possibility of mediating in high-conflict international child abduction cases. As part of this process, she trained as a mediator and comediated most of the original cases chosen for the successful pilot project. For the last 18 years, she has provided assistance to other organisations in Europe and consults with, and collaborates in, setting up similar schemes.
She is a training provider in international cross-border children’s issues to mediators in both Europe and Japan. She is part of the European Network of Cross-Border Family Mediators and as such co-mediates with colleagues from other jurisdictions to help parents resolve their issues. She is now a consultant mediator with Reunite.
