Can you settle a dispute?

Created on Wednesday, January 15th, 2014
by Steve Atkin

Neighbours sometimes fall out. Often they sort the problem and quickly make up, but sometimes they need someone to help them to agree a way forward. We’re looking for people who want to help residents settle disputes. You will be given professional training and achieve a recognised qualification in mediation.

You will work alongside a Derwent Living staff member on several cases per year. You will not be asked to help with disputes in your own area or with people you know.


As a volunteer you’ll need to attend four days of training and complete eight hours of private study. After that you’ll help assist in a few cases each year. We’ll also pay any out of pocket expenses.

If you’d like to know more, please contact our resident involvement team by calling or emailing by Friday 7 February 2014. You must be a customer of Derwent Living to be involved in this mediation initiative.
