What is the service?
A FREE, confidential, impartial Mediation service that works with families who are having arguments. Mediators offer fair and unbiased support to help families recognise for themselves what issues need to be resolved. They work with young people and their families to help them resolve their arguments and move forward in a way that feels fair to everyone involved. Mediation helps them understand what may have led to arguments in the first place and lets them be in control of how the situation is resolved. Mediation is very practical and focuses on what needs to happen to help differences get resolved.
Our Mediators are fully qualified and highly skilled in managing difficult discussions and high emotions within family meetings. They will not judge, tell anyone what to do, take sides or give advice. They will help families to find their own solutions and make lasting changes in how they talk to each other, resulting in fewer arguments and improving family relationships.
How does Mediation work?
Each individual will meet with a Mediator on their own to talk about what has been happening. The Mediator will then explain how Mediation meetings work and, if everyone involved thinks that Mediation will help, the Mediator will arrange one or more meetings.
Depending on the requirements one or two Mediators might be involved who will provide a comfortable and neutral environment in which to talk. They are trained to help families talk about the issues that are important and to deal with difficult discussions. They will help to find a way forward that seems fair and practical to everyone involved.
