Portsmouth Mediation Service

Seeking the Peace & Prosperity of a Restorative Portsmouth

ASSESSMENT

Our assessment service, operated in partnership with Portsmouth City Council Housing Department since 2001, explores opportunities to resolve disagreements.

MEDIATION

Our trained mediators are able to quickly build a rapport with the individuals and parties concerned, encouraging them to talk about their concerns and engage in restorative dialogue.

RESTORATIVE PRACTICE

We are driven by a desire to apply restorative solutions to avoid conflict and build long lasting relationships for the future.
