Safeguarding vulnerable adults and domestic abuse

There are critical considerations for all mediators in respect of domestic abuse when working remotely with mediation clients. For some people, the last several months may have increased the risk of abuse happening within their relationship or they may already be suffering increased levels of/or further harm as a result of being together in their home for most in not all of the time. It is essential that mediators are alert to the potential for abuse between adults and/or involving their children and that you do all that you can to assess risk, not mediate where it is not safe, or you are concerned that it may not be safe to do so and ensure that you provide people with a mans to seek protection for themselves and for any children.
