Community Mediation

 

The service is meant to offer help in settling small scale disputes between neighbours and friends and between those doing business together.

 

Both parties must live in Jersey and able to attend the mediation, in person.

 

It costs each party to the mediation £20.00 which you do not get back if the mediation is not successful. Mediation should always be considered before legal action is taken as the success rate is fairly high.
