Mediation is a form of alternative dispute resolution. BHIMS mediators help parties involved in a dispute understand each other and recognise that they can find their own resolutions to conflicts. Mediation can help with disputes between neighbours, local community groups, families, schools, social care, supported living environments and businesses.

The use of mediation to resolve disputes and conflicts is growing across the country. The core of cases involve breakdown in communication resulting in mistrust, suspicion and in some cases hostility. The biggest problems tend to be lifestyle clashes, noise, issues around pets and anti-social behaviour. Often disputes have been raging for years affecting the health and well-being of everyone involved.

BHIMS offers a safe and confidential environment for all involved to think things through and talk to each other about the issues. Our mediators are trained to work through the issues so that a resolution can be agreed. In excess of 80% of cases that go to mediation are successful!

Road safety affects everyone. It affects whether children can go to the park or walk to school, elderly people can get to the shops, people can take up cycling to get to work or get fit, and families feel safe to get around their neighbourhoods.

For some people, it changes everything. Road crashes and casualties end lives too soon, rip families apart, leave communities reeling in shock and victims feeling alone and without hope.

Brake is a road safety charity working with communities and organisations across the UK to stop the tragedy of road deaths and injuries, make streets and communities safer for everyone, and support people bereaved and seriously injured on roads. We will provide support whether the crash was recent or a long time ago, and whether it occurred in this country or abroad.

Brake's helpline is a quality accredited, freephone support service, providing information and advocacy, emotional support and a listening ear. Calls are confidential and there is no time limit to our support.
