CEDR is a leading ADR service provider specialising in conflict resolution

The Centre for Effective Dispute Resolution (CEDR) specialises in mediation and alternative dispute resolution (ADR). We are an independent non-profit organisation and a registered charity.

Our aim is to provide society with skills and solutions for effective dialogue, and to bring about sustainable change.

To achieve this, we operate in four main ways:

  • Promoting mediation through events, schemes and services.
  • Providing dispute resolution for individuals, businesses, and other organisations.
  • Training mediators – to date, we’ve trained over 5,000 mediators worldwide.
  • Offering consultancy to organisations to help prevent and resolve conflict.

Whether you’re an individual consumer, a business, or any other organisation, we’re here to help you.

Our Vision

Our Vision is that better conflicts result in better outcomes leading to a better world.

We were the original disruptors before disruptors had their name. We continue to honour that legacy, charting our own path as the modern face of mediation and conflict resolution.

We inspire people to look differently at conflict, reframing it as an opportunity to achieve better outcomes and build a better society.

Our Mission

Our mission to provide society with skills and solutions for effective dialogue and conflict management.

Our Values

We approach people as people and demonstrate this in everything we do, through our values of Humanity, Independence, Tenacity and Transformation.
