About Us

We believe in building and supporting a unified Alternative Dispute Resolution industry for South Africa and Africa, with reputable local and international affiliation. SJFAM is an accredited membership organisation of the National Accreditation Board of Family Mediators (NABFAM) and a founding member of the South African Restorative Justice Accreditation Body (SARJAB), which was launched on the 11th of September 2019 at a Unisa Child Justice Conference in Pretoria. These accreditation bodies are sister organisations of the South African Dispute Accreditation Council (DiSAC) and incorporated under the auspices of the Africa Centre for Dispute Settlement (ACDS), which is a member of the International Mediation Institute (IMI).
