What is Community Mediation?

Community Mediation, sometimes known as Neighbourhood Mediation, is a way of resolving disagreements. Disputes may include:

Anti-social behaviour
Boundaries or access problems
Abuse or threatening behaviour
Children’s behaviour
Trees/Hedges
Noise Pollution
Privacy
Rubbish
Parking
Pets

Mediation is different from all other methods of solving disputes, because the parties in dispute decide the terms of the settlement themselves. They are guided in the process by the Mediators.

Mediators do not judge right or wrong
Mediators do not take sides

Mediation is about identifying the cause of the dispute and finding a means of resolving it, which satisfies everyone. This is often called a win-win solution.

Mediation is free, confidential and it works!
