Standards and Insurance

Mediation standards
Mediation is a voluntary, flexible, informal and confidential process, enabling people who work together to resolve disagreements and disputes.It encourages participants to reach their own mutually acceptable agreement, facilitated by an impartial mediator.
Ethical practice, accountability and quality assurance are key issues in mediation and other conflict resolution processes.

Mediation will not work unless everyone involved is sure the process is both confidential and impartial.
