Disability Mediation & Arbitration Services

Access and Evacu8 Mediation Services for businesses and disabled people. Since the loss of the DRC (Disability Rights Commission) there are very limited resources for positive and solutional mediation between companies and disabled people.

Our new service has a free initial consultation for either party (which in most cases settles the dispute) via phone, skype conference or in person at an independent meeting place. (We have our own mediation suite, based in the North west.)

Mike Elkerton MBE has many year experience of successful mediation for large companies, individuals and support organisations and he quotes

 “I have seen many cases of dispute that can be easily settled yet there seems to be no apparent mechanism for this. I am passionate about building bridges and mediation leads to a more diverse and inclusive society that has a positive impact for all”

Access and Evau8 has a team of five disability officers with over 100 years of experience and expertise in a very diverse sector of business and society.

Our third sector Partner organisations can also be called in to arbitrate complaints and issues and with their added expertise we cover all forms of disability and every sector of business.

If you are a business, you can register free and have instant access to first point of call advice.

Disabled people and organisation can also contact us for free advice and on the process of mediation. If that fails the actions and guidance on taking legal litigation, including possible financial support for taking a small claims case to court, is an additional area that we can help with too.

A company may need only one person to work with the media or choose to hire a team depending on the amount of information that has to be controlled.  As Media relation specialists we connect with the media world on a regular basis.

Our professionals work to develop and design media plans that can become a blueprint for what the company hopes to accomplish at the local, national or international level.
