About the Home For Mediation Scheme

As part of our CEDR Foundation work to support wider society in developing mediation and conflict resolution skills, we are pleased to launch a new scheme “Home for Mediation” which will allow charitable and educational organisations the ability to use our central London event space at no venue hire cost for conflict resolution events and training.

This is a great opportunity for relevant charitable and educational organisations to use a leading location in Central London on weekends or outside of CEDR’s office hours  The space is available at no cost to the hirer, beyond paying for a member of CEDR staff to be present during the hire period to assist with the hire.

The Home for Mediation scheme is designed to support charitable and non-profit educational groups who are involved in dispute resolution or conflict management to meet, hold events and have training. 

  • We would expect groups who may be interested to include: mediator/conflict interest groups; student/University groups; international mediation groups; and charities.
  • The Home for Mediation scheme is not available to be used for “For-Profit making activities” such as paid events or training.
  • The Home for Mediation scheme is not available for mediations. These can be booked for CEDR mediation through our Dispute Resolution team.
  • Applications must align with CEDR’s values and strategic priorities. CEDR will approve all applications through the Home for Mediation scheme and reserves the right to refuse applications.

CEDR is offering three meeting rooms (which can also be combined into one room) and breakout space for the Home for Mediation Project. CEDR’s space can accommodate anything from small meetings through to large presentations to 60 people.
