About Us

The National Mediation Awards is jointly organised by the Civil Mediation Council, the College of Mediators and the Family Mediation Council. 

As membership organisations for mediators from all sectors, the CMC, CoM and FMC are committed to setting and maintaining professional standards for mediators, increasing awareness of mediation and promoting it as the first port of call for dispute resolution, and extending its use more widely. All three welcome the opportunity presented by The National Mediation Awards to:

  • Raise the profile of mediation and mediators
  • Demonstrate collaboration between mediation organisations to promote and develop the field of mediation
  • Highlight excellent mediation practice and the credibility of the mediation profession
  • Ensure diversity and inclusion matters are an intrinsic part of mediation
