Webinar: Preventing Homelessness with Mediation

6th December 2019

12:00 UK time

On 3rd April this year, the Homelessness Reduction Act came into force. Under this new legislation, local authorities and other government bodies have a legally-binding duty to provide a wider range of services and protocols, including information and advice, to people at risk of homelessness.

Many are seeing mediation as a key tool in preventing situations where homelessness results from family breakdowns and other conflict, especially for young people.

Official statistics suggest that 57% of youth homelessness is a result of someone being forced to leave their home by a family member or co-tenant. This could be because of lifestyle choices, substance misuse, mental health issues, or something as simple as a breakdown in the relationship between two tenants or family members. In addition, conflict within a tenant-landlord relationship could lead directly to someone ending up on the streets.

Join our CEO & Founder, Dr Mike Talbot, as he reflects on how mediation can be used in this life-changing way, and how our Mediation Skills for Homelessness Prevention course works.

We are mediation specialists. We understand how and why mediation works, we are experts in training and qualifying mediators, and we are passionate about what we do.
