A Mediator is an impartial, non-judgemental person/ persons who manage negotiations between disputing parties in a neutral way. The aim is to help the people involved in a dispute to reach an agreement that is acceptable to both sides. The mediator acts as a “go-between” to help re-open channels of communication and assist neighbours in coming to an agreement.
Mediation is proven to work very well in neighbourhood disputes.
Clann have a number of employees who are professionally trained in Mediation and conflict and dispute resolution. If neighbours cannot come to a resolution themselves, Clann may offer mediation as a resource to assist neighbours in finding a resolution together.
