Founded in 2003, the CMC is an independent and neutral body whose charitable aims are to encourage the use of mediation to resolve conflict and to educate all sectors of society about mediation and other forms of dispute resolution.  Through our registration programmes we promote the highest standards of skill, conduct and integrity in mediation and aim to enable access to high quality mediation services.  We act as a link between all who are interested in mediation, in particular our members, the public, businesses, the professions and the government and also seek to provide a forum for individuals and organisations to work collaboratively on areas of mutual interest.


The Family Mediation Council (FMC)

The FMC is dedicated to promoting best practice in family mediation. Our central aim is to ensure the public can confidently access family mediation services that offer high quality mediation. To help us achieve this we have put in place a system of self-regulation, through the Family Mediation Standards Board, which ensures that all of our registered mediators are trained to a high standard, and that FMC Accredited (FMCA) mediators have proved their competency. Our register of mediators can be found online. The FMC also works with researchers, interested parties and government to inform debate and ensure policy makers understand the benefits that mediation can bring.
