Community Law & Mediation's Mediation service was established in 2004 to address the need for free mediation at community level, particularly beyond the traditional field of family law. The Mediation service is a free and confidential service and offers an alternative method for parties involved in a dispute to resolve their issues and reach an agreement, which is acceptable to both sides. Over the years, the service has expanded to include conflict coaching and mediation in areas such as elder mediation, sibling disputes, workplace disputes and grandparent visitation mediation.
The Mediation service fits well within the many services offered by Community Law & Mediation whose overall aim is that of empowerment of those living in disadvantage whether this is by providing them with legal advice and information so that they are better able to assert their rights or, as with mediation and conflict coaching, by providing them with the means to take control of their lives by resolving disputes themselves. In this way, Mediation complements the legal service as an alternative dispute resolution process when the latter is not appropriate. This is particularly true of private disputes between family members and neighbours where it is vital that good relationships are preserved and parties are enabled to take important decisions over matters which affect their lives.
