Mediation Training Open Morning, October 8th

Mediation Plus are holding an Open Morning on Saturday 8th October for anyone interested in training to become a mediator. We will be running our next accredited Mediation Skills training course at the end of October, and the event is an opportunity to meet some of the service's existing mediator team, trustees and managers, and find out more about mediation.

The course is open to anyone looking to acquire mediation skills and will be offered at a heavily discounted rate for those who wish to become volunteer mediators with Mediation Plus after qualifying. The open morning runs from 10am to 12noon at Southview, Western Road, in Hailsham. For further information call Mediation Plus on 01323 442781 or visit www.mediation-plus.org.uk.

Mediation Plus out and about

The Mediation Plus team have been out and about this week letting people know about the services we offer. Service Development Manager Clive Gross was a guest speaker at the Eatbourne and Wealden Landlords Forum talking about how mediation can help resolve disputes between Landlords and Tenants without having to resort to the Courts, while Time2Talk coordinator Joan Eades was at the Fresher's Fair at Sussex Downs College in Lewes, talking to staff and students about our intergenerational mediation service.

If you organise an event and would be interested in having us along to explain more about who we are and what we do, please get in touch!

Mediation series on BBC3?

We've recently been helping a TV production company with some background research into a proposal for a series about young people going through mediation for BBC3, based on our intergenerational mediation service Time2Talk. The proposal is now in and, should it get commissioned, we hope to be involved with the development of the series as it progresses. Watch this space!
