A free mediation service offered by Aberdeenshire Council, in conjunction with an independent charity, is designed to help residents resolve disagreements peacefully and informally.
The Aberdeenshire Community Mediation Service can help local people to resolve problems between neighbours and other groups, relating to a wide range of issues including noise, parking and pets.
The mediation service, established in 2004, is managed by community justice charity Sacro and funded by Aberdeenshire Council’s housing service and the Aberdeenshire Community Safety Partnership.
Residents can refer themselves to the service by phoning 01224 560570, or by writing to the Aberdeenshire Community Mediation Service, 110 Crown Street, Aberdeen, AB11 6HJ. For more information on the service visit: www.sacro.org.uk.
