London Community Mediation Council deliver mediation awareness training to housing officers from Notting Hill Housing Trust 17 May 2013

On 17 May 2013 Anne Jones from Merton and Sutton Mediation and Marcia Lewis from LAMP (Lewisham) delivered mediation awareness training to 12 housing officers from Notting Hill Housing Trust.  The training covered:

An introduction to LCMC and its member organisations
An overview of the mediation process
Types of cases which are suitable for mediation
How to make a referral

Participants got a chance to test their current knowledge of mediation in a true/false exercise, and to role-play practicing offering mediation to a tenant experiencing conflict with a neighbour.  The group was very lively and a good time was had by all – at least Anne and Marcia enjoyed themselves, and the feedback was very positive.
People found the following particularly useful:

Examples of when/how mediation works.

Participants’ comments included:

A visit from Konfliktradet - The National Mediation Services of Norway

On 9th May 2012 of London Community Mediation Services (LCMC) hosted a social event and networking evening to welcome a group of around 20 mediators from one of 22 mediation services in Norway and 40 mediators from London mediation services, at the Oval Theatre in Stockwell.

The Norwegian mediators specialise in Restorative Justice and were visiting London to learn more about the different community mediation services in this country, and how we operate.

The event was arranged by Merton and Sutton and CALM mediation services with support from other mediation services who are all members of LCMC. The evening started with food and the chance to chat informally, and included a presentation from the Norwegian visitors, a question and answer session covering mediation practice in both countries, and the opportunity to share experiences in small groups.

Norwegian and London  Mediators

After the event we received this email from the Norwegian mediators, thanking us:

“We are now back in Norway, and we are so happy about all the efforts you made for us in London! The meeting with you and your mediators were really our visit’s highlight! … on Wednesday the great mediator event! We will never forget that meeting! We have a lot in common, and a lot to learn each other. Our mediators were so enthusiastic afterwards and said: The English mediators were so nice and friendly! I think I know the reason why! Mediators are people with special qualities; they like people, they like to talk to people, and they want to help people! No wonder they got good contact with each other! I hope, when you have read the book about Norway, that some of you would like to come to Norway. “

London Mediators' Day 2012

On Saturday 13 October 2012 around 60 community mediators from the London area attended a conference at Ricards Lodge High School in Wimbledon. Ten community mediation services were represented at the conference, which was hosted jointly by Conflict and Change and Merton and Sutton Mediation, on behalf of the London Community Mediation Council.

The keynote speaker, Hen Wilkinson from Community Resolve in Bristol set out the challenges facing community mediation, which led into a round table session facilitated by Ros and Nana from Conflict and Change. Groups discussed:

Groups then made recommendations for LCMC about what they would like to see the organisation working towards, and wrote each of them on a brick. The bricks were then stuck on the wall to build a brick wall of suggestions for LCMC to take forward. These focused on:

LCMC have used this feedback to assist in setting our goals for 2013-14.
