What does mediation cost?

Devon Mediation is a charity and operates on a not-for-profit basis using trained mediators who give their time freely.

Some of Devon Mediation’s work is with people who contact us directly themselves.  In these cases, we will ask for a small contribution to help pay for the work – such charges are usually very much lower than some of the alternatives, such as seeking legal advice and going to court.
Much of our work, however, comes from organisations (eg housing associations) who refer individuals to us. In those cases the referring organisation will usually 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 individuals (eg the tenants) themselves.

For more information about costs please email us at coordinator@devon-mediation.org.uk or call our coordinator on 07423274429.  We will be happy to talk with you about any likely charges to help you decide whether mediation is right for you.
