Mediation Services

Mediation is a form of dispute resolution in which the mediator facilitates communications between the researcher and client in dispute to assist them in reaching a mutually acceptable settlement.

Mediation services should be used when it appears that other than resorting to litigation or more formal practices a positive result can be achieved through early and informal intervention.

Our mediators avoid taking sides, making judgements, driving guidance and/or acting in an advisory or arbitrary capacity.

Our mediation does not impose a decision or attempt to judge the merits of the case.  Our mediation services are voluntary; any party may withdraw at any time. All the discussions are completely confidential.

The ERA offer a free service to members.

What people say about us

"The mentoring programme from my perspective is going well - we have had 2 Zoom sessions with a 3rd in the diary and we have set up a WhatsApp group. Ahead of each session I set an agenda - the two people have very different backgrounds and home lives, both have highlighted different short and medium-term goals, but both are interested in each other’s and are happy to share openly their thoughts on the understanding it is in the strictest of confidence as they work for different companies."
