Community Law & Mediation (CLM) delivered 1,360 hours of free mediation services last year, helping to resolve more than 150 disputes.

The independent, community-based law centre said demand for mediation as an alternative to court has grown over recent years.

The law centre, which provides a free mediation service in north Dublin, Wicklow and Limerick, is promoting its services as part of Mediation Awareness Week, which began yesterday.

Rose Wall, CLM CEO, said: “We have observed a significant increase in demand for our community-based mediation service. Our panel of 40 volunteer mediators delivered 1,360 hours of free mediation services last year, helping to resolve more than 150 disputes.

“They dealt with a range of issues, including parental and family disputes, disputes between neighbours and in the workplace. We also received a number of referrals from the Dublin and Bray District Courts.

“Community law centres such as CLM provide a vital service. By facilitating free access to expert mediation, legal and education services we are making our communities more just and inclusive and empowering people to actively participate in society.”
