The Activist Mediation Network is a network of mediators based around the UK. We support groups working for social change to navigate through conflict and develop their own capacity to handle conflict.

We do this by:

  • Offering a mediation service for grassroots groups working for social change who are experiencing conflict and would like external support.

  • Building and maintaining a network of mediators.

  • Training groups to develop skills to facilitate their own conflicts

  • Supporting groups to develop & agree upon their own system and process for dealing with their conflicts.

  • Shifting the culture within social change movements towards greater willingness to work through and learn from conflicts within groups. We’d love to see skills for facilitating conflict being as highly valued as other skills.
