We all want to be able to enjoy our own home, though sometimes it's not easy.
So many things can cause conflict between neighbours - noise, children, pets, parking
- that a situation can easily get out of hand. That's where Aberdeenshire Community
Mediation service comes in.
Mediation is a means of resolving conflict where discussion between parties to
a dispute is facilitated by a mediator. The aim is to help those involved to move
forward and where possible, find an acceptable and workable solution to the dispute.
Aberdeenshire Community Mediation Service is managed by Sacro and funded by
Aberdeenshire Council through housing and Community Safety monies. The service
has been working with communities since 2004 and has received over 1,200 referrals.
The Community Mediation Service is available to all residents of Aberdeenshire,
regardless of tenure type, with referrals being received from partner agencies or
directly from those involved in a dispute.
Mediation is free, voluntary, confidential and is carried out by trained and
impartial mediators. If you feel you could benefit from involvement with the Aberdeenshire
Community Mediation Service, or if your group would like a presentation, please contact:
The Mediation Team on 01224 560570.
