About the Service

HOW TO:

  • Before you can use the RBKC Mediation Service you need to:

    • know what Mediation is

    • consent to the Mediation process

    • be referred by your RBKC Housing Officer

HOW WE WORK?

  • A trained mediator will speak with you on the phone to hear your concerns 

  • They make a similar call to your neighbour to hear their viewpoint also 

  • The Mediator will not take sides in a dispute or decide who is right or wrong 

  • The Mediator will help both neighbours to consider all the options. One option might be to meet each other in a neutral setting, with the mediator present, to discuss how best to resolve things

WHAT CAN MEDIATION DO FOR YOU?

  • Mediation can help you to:

    • clarify what the problem was

    • understand what was going on for your neighbour

    • agree what to do next

    • sort the problem out
