Community Mediation Disputes

Community mediation also known as neighbour mediation concerns disputes over anti social behaviour and disputes within the community between different groups of people and different communities.

Community disputes cause immense stress and tension and usually involve several people which makes the dispute worse than a typical neighbour dispute, although such disputes can be minor, in the extreme cases they can lead to acts of violence, assault and public order offences tearing communities apart.

Community mediation resolves disputes without having to involve other parties such as the police, anti social behaviour units, housing officers and so forth.
