Living in communities with all the stresses associated with modern living can produce conflicts between neighbours. Disputes over noise, parking, boundaries, hedges, children’s behaviour, pets and other anti-social behaviour issues can develop into serious conflict if left unresolved.
Mediation can provide a fast and effective way of resolving conflicts – especially if it is used early, before problems escalate. Our mediation service is confidential, impartial and non-judgmental; we do not take sides.
We can receive referrals to our service directly from individuals. We can also receive referrals from agencies such as Social Landlords, Housing Associations, Local Authorities, Sussex Police or other organisations. We have Service Level Agreements with some of these organisations.
There is no cost to parties if referrals come through agencies who have service level agreements with us but, like all small independent charities, we have to cover our costs for non-funded cases through contributions from the parties involved.
