Mediation can be used in a wide range of situations and increasingly its value is being recognised to help resolve all sorts of difficulties. Many of our mediators are trained to use mediation in other settings including:
- Civil and Commercial disputes
- Peer Mediation (young people using mediation to resolve disputes between themselves)
- Disability Conciliation and SEN Mediation (to resolve disputes around the needs of disabled people)
- Restorative Justice
- Homelessness issues – especially for young people
The College is working hard often in collaboration with other organisations to help develop recognised standards for these and other areas of mediation to ensure that the public can find mediators who are suitably trained and experienced. As such standards are developed we will be inviting mediators in these fields to apply for College recognition. In the meantime if you are looking for a mediator who specialises in a particular area do get in touch and we will do our best to help you find someone who can help.
