Mediation Awareness Week 2017 – Community Law & Mediation
Community Law & Mediation (CLM) is delighted to be again involved in the annual Mediation Awareness Week (October 7-14th 2017).
We are holding an evening discussion, on Wednesday October 11th from 6.30-7.30pm, on ‘What Mediation Can Do For You’. If you’ve ever wondered how you - or your friends, family or local community - could benefit from mediation, now is a great opportunity to find out. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to take part, if you’d like to. Our local library - on Barryscourt Road in Coolock (D17 C950) - is hosting our discussion, which will be led by experienced mediators.
Elsewhere, this Mediation Awareness Week 2017, CLM Bray is delivering a Mediation Information and Awareness-Raising Presentation to the TUSLA Wicklow team meeting, in Newtownmountkennedy Primary Care Centre. This presentation is not open to the public.
Community Law and Mediation (CLM) has been providing free mediation in North Dublin since 2004. Our confidential, voluntary service includes Community, Parental and Elder Mediation; as well as conflict management coaching. We also provide this service in Bray and Limerick.
Mediation is non-judgmental and aims to help people involved in a dispute to reach an agreement that is acceptable to both sides. CLM has more than 50 volunteer mediators, who are all accredited by the Mediators’ Institute of Ireland and act as a "go-between" to help re-open channels of communication.
CLM’s mediation sessions are held, by appointment, in the following locations:
- Limerick Social Service Centre, Henry Street, Limerick
- Northside Civic Offices, Bunratty rd, Coolock, Dublin 17
- A number of venues in Bray

The biggest challenge for mediation is that people are generally not aware of its existence and when they are aware, there is misunderstanding. With Mediation Awareness Week - and the newly enacted Mediation Bill 2017 - awareness, knowledge and use of mediation is expected to grow substantially across Ireland.
