What is Mediation?


What is discussed in the room, stays in the room. People can feel confident that the discussions are confidential from the first phone call to
the joint meetings.


Mediation is voluntary so people are free to leave the process at any stage.


The mediator remains impartial throughout the process, and is non-judgemental and non-directive.


The people involved make the decisions. They work it out together.

Low cost

Mediation is far less costly than using legal proceedings, as well as being quicker.

Mediation is a process whereby people who are in conflict or in a dispute can sort out their differences with the help of a trained, impartial mediator. The mediator will meet each party privately first and then will meet both parties in a neutral venue. The mediator will help the parties by asking questions and listening carefully to the parties, so that the issues are identified, which can lead to a mutually agreed settlement. Most mediations reach successful outcomes. DCM offers co-mediation, that is, the mediation is conducted by two mediators.

'Let's Work It Out' Project  (LWiO)


Let's Work it Out is a pilot project between DCM and Treoir, to help parents who do not live together, but want to parent together. The project is designed to help parents communicate better with each other in drawing up a parenting plan.
DCM offers a range of options to parents  in achieving this.


I had been having a lot of trouble with my neighbours over noise. Their dogs were constantly barking. I met the mediators in my home first and they really listened to my concerns. I met with my neighbours with the mediators, and we agreed a time when I would not be disturbed by the dogs. My neighbours and I get on so much better now.
