This page is for people interested in becoming mediators and for our existing team of volunteer mediators.
Thinking of volunteering?
Devon Mediation Service welcomes enquiries from potential volunteer mediators. As a volunteer mediator you can take on as much or little work as you wish, making this a very flexible volunteering role.
We welcome the opportunity to talk through the work we do and we will send you an information pack. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer we will ask you to complete a short application form and attend an interview (usually via Zoom).
You do not need to have had previous experience. You will be required to attend our training course which follows a nationally recognised curriculum and is 4 days in duration – usually over two weekends. Our mediators usually work in pairs with a Lead Mediator and a Co-mediator. You will be paired with an experienced Lead Mediator until you feel confident to take this role.
Information for current mediators
If you are already a volunteer mediator, the following information is provided to ensure that you are aware of our handbook and key policies. You will be given a password to access these pages.
