Neighbours sometimes fall out. Often, they sort the problem out and quickly makeup, but sometimes they need someone to help them to agree on a way forward.

We’re looking for people to join our Mediation team, who want to help residents settle disputes. You will be given professional training and achieve a recognised qualification in mediation.

You will work alongside a Places for People Group staff member on several cases per year. You will not be asked to help with disputes in your own area or with people you know.

As a volunteer, you’ll need to attend 5 days of training and complete eight hours of private study. After that, you’ll help assist in a few cases each year.  We’ll also pay any out of pocket expenses.

If you’d like to know more, please contact our Customer Engagement team by calling 0345 266 9760 or by emailing, You will be asked to complete an application form and those successful at that stage will be invited for an informal discussion about the role. 

The training dates are from 4-8 October and the closing date for applications is 30 August 2021.
