Mediation is a way for people to resolve their differences without one party being forced to leave their home.
If you are staying with friends or relatives and have been asked to leave, or if you have been asked to leave by your partner, mediation might help you resolve the problem or at least help prevent your immediate homelessness while alternative arrangements are made.
When you seek housing assistance from the council, we may ask a mediation service to try and mediate between you and the person asking you to leave in order to find an appropriate solution to your housing problem.
