Some of Devon Mediation’s work is with people who have read or heard about mediation and make contact with DMS directly themselves. In these cases, Devon Mediation will ask for a small contribution to help pay for its work – such charges are usually very much lower than some of the possible alternatives, such as seeking legal help and going to court.
Sometimes organisations which know of disagreements may refer people to Devon Mediation, and the organisation may pay for the mediation work. For example, some housing services refer tenants who are having problems getting on with their neighbours. In such cases, there is no direct charge to the people who are meeting with the mediator.
If you are worried about costs, contact Devon Mediation Service. We will talk with you first about any likely charges, before you decide whether mediation is right for you.
