Mediation North Surrey
Building Bridges since 1998
Mediation North Surrey was established in 1998 to attempt to resolve residents disputes without the expense and trauma of going to court. We work predominantly within the boroughs of Elmbridge, Runnymede and Spelthorne and focus particularly on cases involving disputes between neighbours. We handle 80 – 120 cases per annum so we have a lot of experience helping to resolve issues.
We are a charity run by volunteers to assist residents living in the local area find resolution to their disputes. Our cases are referred to us from a number of sources including from the Police, Housing Associations and other LOCAL agencies. In addition, some cases are referred directly to us by the residents in dispute and we call these cases “Self Referrals”.
The service follows a proven approach which looks to bring parties involved in disputes together and depends on the good will of each of these parties to succeed. If Mediation North Surrey is involved early enough, the service can help prevent many disputes escalating in seriousness and resolve them to the satisfaction of all those concerned.
All Mediators must complete a recognised, professional training course before taking on cases and working with parties. They also receive on-going in house training to ensure that their skills are maintained and experience is shared.
Our Mediators and committee all volunteer their time and expertise at no charge to the charity. We are funded by donations and grants to enable us to function and offer mediation at no charge. Donations are welcomed although not obligatory.
We cover the areas above. If you need help in another part of Surrey, please refer to www.allianceofsurreymediationservices.org
