Neighbour and community mediation is currently provided to residents of Wolverhampton. The Wolverhampton City Council based service is located within the Community Safety Team, delivering cross tenure intervention. The benefits of mediation are significant and can deliver solutions to complex problems between various parties. Mediation can avoid escalation of problems that can lead to stress, financial loss, health deterioration and low morale, amongst other detrimental effects.
The mediation team consists of a small team and a pool of trained and qualified volunteer mediators.
The mediation service is now breaking into a new market…the Workplace!
Mediation empowers people to manage their own conflict through a process where difficult situations are managed efficiently, confidentially and as fairly as possible. It can be a much speedier route to resolution than formal procedure.
