New Video on Mediation

Mediation is a positive, forward-thinking yet confidential process designed to resolve personal and
professional disputes using a neutral third party to facilitate a settlement.  The mediator does not judge or impose a solution but helps both parties work towards a mutually
satisfactory outcome.

Video produced with young people

We have produced a video in collaboration with young people with special educational needs and/or disability (SEND).  It helps explain how our service supports children and young people.

A big thank you to Sam Potter for his fantastic animations and to “Bridging The Gap Together!” for their help with the script and filming.  Please share this video with friends, schools and youth groups.
