The talk²sort Mediation Service works with young people aged 11-19 and their families who are experiencing difficulties at home or with their relationship.
We help young people to avoid becoming homeless, in both the immediate and distant future. We believe that resolving conflict can have huge benefits on people’s mental health and wellbeing, leading to a more positive future. Often, this involves working through a number of issues which may include:
Mediation is a free and confidential service. As impartial mediators we don’t take sides or try to prove who is wrong or right. We are also non-judgemental so won’t give a personal opinion on the things people choose to tell us or want to work on.
We help people by listening to them and exploring how they would like things to improve moving forward, supporting them to decide what they can do to make positive change happen.
Mediation is voluntary – we think it is really important that people make their own decision over whether or not they want to take part. We don’t have any time restrictions or limit to number of sessions so people can work with us for as long as they would like.
