Award winning mediation groups receives grant

Letchworth Garden City Heritage Foundation has granted Mediation Hertfordshire £5,000 to help reach out to more groups and people about their services. 

The group was founded in 1998 and was set up to support people experiencing conflict in the community. Since then, they have been able to expand their work to schools, families, and workplaces. They can offer an independent and impartial lifeline to those experiencing conflict. The charity has many years of experience in its field and had an 80% success rate in the 2021/22 period. Mediation Hertfordshire recently won ‘Mediation Provider of the Year’ from the National Mediation Awards, during a ceremony which took place at the Houses of Parliament.
