All local support
Our Time2Talk service offers mediation to young people and family members of different generations who are experiencing relationship difficulties. Our service supports children and young people aged 9 to 19 and their families or carers across Eastbourne, Wealden and Lewes.
Our trained and accredited mediators help you to identify needs, clarify issues, explore solutions and negotiate agreements. Our mediators act as facilitators, helping people to work out a solution that is realistic, practical and workable. The decision making rests with the parties involved and the mediation process is entirely voluntary.
Our service is specifically designed for men (16 ) and offers the opportunity to explore what has happened and how it is affecting you. 1 -1 counselling offers a private space in which to do this, whilst group work offers the opportunity to reduce isolation by meeting other men who have had similar experiences.
We also offer counselling to partners, family and friends who are supporting a man who has experienced sexual violence. The process begins with an initial meeting to discuss what you are looking for and how we can help. To find out more, call us or fill out the online form on our website.
We provide 4 different types of mediation: Community, Time2Talk (Intergenerational), Family (Divorce & separation), Peer (training young people in schools). Community Mediation - helping to resolve conflicts between neighbours or local community groups Mediation is a way of helping people to discuss problems and reach solutions that are acceptable to everyone involved through listening, supporting and guiding them through the process. The service is confidential (unless there is a risk of harm to anybody), impartial and independent. Time2Talk (Intergenerational Mediation) Every family has arguments from time to time, particularly teenagers and parents. Sometimes this can lead to family breakdown. Time 2 Talk helps people to talk and listen to each other, and work towards better communication and understanding. We offer help to improve/restore communications with your family, whoever you consider your family to be - whether living together or apart. Our mediators are all either accredited with the College of Mediators and or Family Mediation Council, or working toward accreditation
