IMG_9538 copy.jpg


The Young Mediators' Group is a space for learning about and engaging with mediation. We explore the purpose and practice of mediation and ways in which we can engage with this forum. Mediation is a different, positive way of looking at, dealing with and resolving conflict. It is simple but radical.


The Young Mediators' Group is for people from all professions and walks of life who are new to, or have an interest in, mediation.

Our aims and objectives are to:

  • Raise awareness of the purpose and the profile of mediation in Scotland, across all sectors;
  • Encourage and contribute to education, training and research into mediation;
  • Promote a greater understanding and use of mediation as an effective dispute resolution tool;
  • Create and encourage links among our community, other groups and organisations with similar or complementary aims and objectives, in Scotland and further afield;
  • Represent Young Mediators' and contribute to relevant research and consultation on our members' behalf;
  • Better understand public and professional conceptions about mediation allowing their development with our influence as appropriate.
