UK Mediation Awareness week was the brain child of Dave Owen back in February this year, who wanted to showcase all forms of mediation available in the UK in a similar way to Mediation Awareness Week in Ireland.
After our involvement with Family Mediation Week in January 2016 (organised by the Family Mediators Association), we decided that it was a fantastic opportunity to assist having learnt valuable lessons in running online awareness campaigns – especially from a technology perspective.
In March 2016, the working group was formed, bringing together a unique blend of volunteers skillfully guiding by Andrew Burr acting as chair, who have all generously given their time. The group then developed a coordinated approach to contact mediation organisations, and thousands of mediators across the UK. Several organisations have devised mock mediation events, conferences, receptions, Q&A sessions to help raise awareness of UK mediation.
