Broxtowe Borough Mediation Service

Mediation Service
Broxtowe Borough Mediation Service is an established provider of Community Mediation within the borough of Broxtowe.

Mediation is a method of conflict resolution that enables the people involved in a conflict to reach a mutually acceptable solution with the help of a neutral third party-the mediator.  Broxtowe Borough Mediation Service (BBMS) exists to provide mediators in the field of neighbour disputes.  It is available to all residents within the borough free of charge.

Broxtowe Borough Mediation Service is committed to the empowerment of individuals and communities, enabling them to take ownership of the issues that affect them and to deal with any conflicts that arise without the need to resort to other agencies.  It is our belief that the benefits of this approach are wide ranging, both in terms of helping to build a feeling of community spirit and in terms of providing an alternative where more formal approaches to problem solving are either not available or have been found to be unsuccessful.

What is Mediation?
Mediation is a way of solving problems between neighbours.  Trained mediators listen and talk to the people involved.  They do not take sides or judge anybody, but aim to help neighbours reach an agreement that works for everyone. Click on the link above to find out more.

How does it work?
Mediation meetings can take place in your own home, we can also arrange an alternative venue if necessary.  We will arrange similar meetings with your neighbours and only with your permission can we exchange agreed information between you both.  The aim of these meetings is to help you understand each other and find a realistic agreement for the future.  We call this shuttle mediation.  If appropriate, we can also arrange face to face meetings which we have been told participants find beneficial at a neutral venue.
