– we provide restorative services and support as a means of addressing harm caused that has been acknowledged by the wrongdoer. Solutions have been agreed at restorative conferences in cases of hate crime, theft, assault, drug use, arson and possession of a weapon. Please see our Mediation and Restorative Justice page for more information.
Professional Practice Supervision
– our PPCs are able to offer 1:1 and group supervision, which supports your work as a mediator / facilitator with the focus on reflective practice. It offers the opportunity to learn from others, debrief / offload following complex cases and encourages continuous professional development. More details are available on our Mediator Support and Events page.
Our mediators / facilitators work with people to empower them to reach an agreement or resolution they can all live with. We help people focus on their needs and how their future could be if they work towards putting disagreements to one side. Our intervention minimises costs and is a good value alternative to other types of dispute resolution approaches.
"Trainers were great at explaining things and giving examples which helped you to understand better. Really great trainers - friendly and helpful"
"It was very interactive and the language used to deliver the content was easy to understand. Loads of good examples were provided during this course"
Interesting topics that I ordinarily wouldn't have the opportunity to learn about, ie child mediation. Also enjoyed the games - fun way to learn and keep people engaged. Really enjoyable as always, and a splendid lunch. ThanksFeedback from our 2020 North West Mediation Network event
"Great structure, well paced & interactive. The whole course was brilliant, particularly the role plays. Just a big thank you for being approachable, encouraging openness & encouraging us to feel confident"
