Portsmouth Mediation Service

Restorative justice and mediation services.  Wishing you a peaceful Christmas!


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


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.


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