Additional information

We recognise that outcomes chosen by the participants in a dispute are stronger and more sustainable than decisions imposed from outside. Our facilitative mediation process engages parties in a transparent and collaborative approach that allows the parties to stay in control, have their say and achieve outcomes they know will work.
