We have trained a small group of volunteers, housing officers and PCSOs in Community Mediation which will add to their facilitating skills and day to day work. The new skills have already been put to good use where there has been community conflict.
Next year we are planning further specialist training. The next session will address Family Group Restorative Interventions. Volunteers and staff from social care will be taking part in the training.
This year volunteers alone have worked on over 150 cases. Our hard working and dedicated volunteers are at the centre of what we do. The work is both challenging and rewarding. We are always looking for people from all areas of our diverse community to volunteer as facilitators. If you are interested please get in touch.
