Mediation+

Community Mediation Service providing neighbour, intergenerational, workplace, family and community mediation across Eastbourne and Wealden.

Founded 2006

  • Mission statement

    Mediation Plus aims to help young people and adults across the community through the offer of a free, confidential, impartial and independent mediation service. Its team of trained volunteer mediators assists neighbours who are in dispute and, through the Time 2 Talk service, young people and families who are experiencing relationship difficulties. By advocating resolution through non-confrontational means, Mediation Plus aims to promote peaceful, cohesive communities, improve the emotional well-being of its users and help resolve family situations in which there is a danger of the young person becoming homeless.

    Our organisation became an independent charity in 2006 after the merger of two local mediation services. Our mediators offer flexibility with visit times and are able to visit neighbours and families in their own homes. They will listen to all the individuals involved in the dispute and then help them to find a way forward that is acceptable to everyone involved. Our neighbour service covers the Wealden and Eastbourne areas and our Time 2 Talk service covers the Wealden, Eastbourne and Lewes District areas.

    Mediation Plus also offers Peer Mediation training to local schools, mediation skills training to school support staff and Workplace Mediation to local businesses.
