“It’s good to know someone else can advise you, as being alone you need to be fair in your judgement. Mediation helps towards this aim although in my case the complainant would not cooperate in a good solution. Thank you for your time and involvement”. Local Authority Tenant

“My neighbour did not respond to any letters from Bristol Mediation. He refused to even listen to me at any time about the noise. Your team suggested to me, as a last resort to drop in a polite note. My note read ‘that all I wanted from my neighbours was an amiable and peaceful relationship’. For the last two nights, there was no noise from his bedroom………..Thank you so very much for your help. It is appreciated!” Home Owner

“Your service brings a dimension that we as landlords value and appreciate, whereas we are confined to issues around conditions of tenancy which is altogether more formal and not always focusing on resolution” Senior Housing Office, Bristol City Council

“Mediation can help you feel more confident and secure in your home and community. Bristol Mediation works with neighbours and communities across Bristol and the surrounding area”

“All in all I was very pleased with the involvement and outcome from mediation. Everything you have done made it possible for my family to get on with the neighbours. We’re like old friends with each other and it’s all thanks to you and your team of experts. There’s no advice I can give for mediation to improve because the service I received was outstanding. Excellent!!” Tenant (Local Authority)

“Mediation has helped in a big way. Now we are friends with our neighbours. Thanks again.” Tenant (Local Authority)

“Although there was no meeting between myself and the mediator, I had very good feelings through the telephone conversations. The Mediator was very helpful to me and reassuring and understanding”. Home Owner

“Although my neighbour still chooses not to have any direct contact with me, he has done what I requested (for the main part) and did allow the mediators to inform me that he had taken steps to resolve the impasse, so I am grateful for your intervention” Home Owner

“Mediation can help break a cycle of accusation and hostility between you and your neighbour. Mediation can sort things out for the better”
