How to make your nomination
The National Mediation Awards is open to each and every mediator, mediation trainer or mediation organisation in England and Wales. The awards serve to recognise exceptional endeavour, hard work and inspiring achievements in the field and provides the well deserved recognition.
While we understand that this is an unusual time, it is very important to reflect on what we have achieved in the last year.
You can choose from 11 award categories that recognise outstanding individuals and organisations. If you have a high-achieving mediation business that you want to shout about, or have made strides in your diversity and inclusion work, with so many categories to choose from, there’s a place for everyone to shine.
It’s free to enter and you can make as many nominations as you like. Entries close at midnight on 31 July 2020.
