If you are considering mediation to resolve a dispute, this web site can help you find out more. We provide general information about mediation and we can help you to nominate a mediator who has the expertise and experience to assist with your particular needs. 

If you are looking to join our Association, we provide a variety of useful resources and services exclusively to members.  We hold regular meetings which qualify for CPD and we provide peer support to discuss difficult cases, share experience and develop expertise. For mediators seeking accreditation or those who are training, we offer opportunities for observations and mentoring. We refer enquiries to suitable members who have the appropriate accreditation, based on a mediator's area of qualified expertise and experience.  For further information, please see our section Membership.

 ***   Grant funding available   ***
The Association is pleased to announce that grants are now available to subsidise the cost of some mediations in which the value of the dispute is relatively modest.  If you would like to find out whether you are eligible for this subsidy, please contact the registrar when making an enquiry.
