Sacro Community Mediation services work with neighbours and neighbourhoods to deal with local disputes and help make communities safer.
Community mediation provides a safe, structured and positive environment for people in dispute to come to agreements and better understanding.
Many neighbourhood disputes, even seemingly minor ones, can escalate if not dealt with at an early stage, and mediation has an excellent track record in assisting people to find positive solutions.
Mediators have a number of different ways of working, from providing advice and guidance to allow people to resolve disputes themselves, to getting groups of neighbours together in a structured mediation meeting.
Mediation meetings have a very high success rate, with around 70% to 80% having a positive outcome.
All neighbours and groups in the community who are involved in conflicts or disputes.
Members of the public who have a dispute or conflict can contact our services directly. Agencies such as the police, housing departments and others also make referrals to our services.
