The Association of Midlands Mediators (AMM) is the professional association for mediators practising in the Midlands region of the United Kingdom.

AMM was formed in 2000 to foster the growth of civil and commercial mediation in the Midlands and to maintain and monitor high standards of training and practice by its members. Since then it has expanded its remit to include all matters related to civil, commercial, workplace, employment and other non-family mediation.

All of its mediators are accredited by Civil Mediation Council approved training bodies and are required to undertake continuing professional development.

Mediation is a voluntary process in which a neutral person helps parties to find a mutually acceptable solution to a dispute. Mediation is a highly effective, confidential, economic and speedy process.

A message from our chairman

"Mediation is now mainstream for dispute resolution practitioners, making quick and easy access to local mediators very important.

The AMM offers that service, putting solicitors and others in contact with its members, all of whom are qualified mediators, individually practising in different fields, and offering a variety of fee-scales. We are a member-led, not-for-profit organisation, growing the profile and practice of mediation, for the benefit of local users and our members.

It is a service likely to be in more demand as the April 2013 Civil Justice Reforms take their effect, requiring litigants to run their cases in a more focused, cost-effective way, and likely prompting greater use of mediation in many types of case.

This year AMM is again running its usual programme of events for members, comprising four feedback sessions (quarterly) and two half-day training courses (one Spring, one Autumn). As well as their being presentations at these events, there is also the opportunity for members to share their experiences of mediation, so as to learn collaboratively and improve their skills and profile. We also have a scheme for mentoring less experienced mediators.

We are always looking for ways in which users of our mediators can find it easier to appoint a mediator, so please do contact us if you are a user of our service and have any views on that.

I would like to thank our members and our committee for their continued commitment to delivering this useful service for those in the Midlands needing a local mediator."
