Mediation Dorset provides a Community Mediation service to private individuals to help resolve disputes between people.
Common problems include:
Noise – Parking – Pets – Anti-social behaviour – Rubbish – Trees – Boundaries – Children’s behaviour
Mediation is increasingly accepted as an effective way of dealing with disputes across many areas of society.
Mediation is not discovering who is right and who is wrong; finding out what ought or ought not to have been done. It is a coming together of both parties to find a common solution that works for all.
As a result of receiving a grant, Mediation Dorset are able to offer a price reduction of 90% for mediation in disputes between neighbours – i.e. a price of £45 per mediation. With limited funds available this offer is on a “first come, first served” basis.
If you are in receipt of means tested benefits we would be happy to waive all of the costs. Additionally, a number of Housing Associations and Councils have provided funding for mediation so there is no cost to tenants (please ask).
