Community Justice Centres (CJC) provides free mediation services throughout NSW.
Mediation is an informal, problem-solving process in which an impartial person (a mediator) helps people with a dispute come together to reach an agreement everyone can live with. Thousands of people use mediation services every year to talk about their disputes and reach a solution.
CJC mediation is run by impartial, trained mediators. The mediators don't take sides, or make a decision about a dispute. Their role is to make sure each person has a chance to have their say, keep the discussion on track, and help you come to an agreement wherever possible. CJC mediation:
Has no waiting lists.
Is held in a venue near you.
Lets everyone have their say.
Is more likely to preserve the relationships of the people involved in the conflict.
