Who We Help

Conflict resolution and support when and where you need it. Whoever you are.

Community Community

Because no issue or dispute is ever trivial ...

Disputes between neighbours often have no formal way to resolve them, and can escalate into anti-social, abusive and violent behaviour.

We work with neighbours and communities to provide a safe and structured environment and help reach agreement and understanding.

Civil and commercial disputes can lead to lengthy and costly legal proceedings.

We aim to help you find mediators and support to minimise the time and cost involved. Within the workplace, mediation can maintain and restore employment relationships, leading to increased productivity.

SCHOOLS SPECIAL INITIATIVE

This is a special initiative to support students, parents and staff

Young peoples’ lives are seldom straightforward and there are ever increasing pressures on them. With our unique and special blend of counselling and mediation skills we can help young people and their families to negotiate these years. We enable family members to have a greater understanding of each other and to reach agreement on the things that are important. Also, we help young people to manage their emotions and to learn life skills including how to communicate and relate better to others.
In schools, we can provide bespoke courses or interventions to fit the needs of either a group or any individual and we can also give support to teaching staff.
