New Mediation Service

The local authority are now using Kids.org.uk for mediation and disagreement resolution (they previously used Global Mediation).

KIDS is a national charity with over 50 years’ experience in the field of special educational needs and disability.

What is mediation?

SEND Mediation and Disagreement Resolution is a statutory requirement for local authorities.  It’s a quicker and less formal way to resolve disagreements than going to tribunal, saving time and pressures for all involved and it can help re-build relationships that may have broken down.

Families who are not happy with the outcome of mediation can still make an appeal to the tribunal.

KIDS offer a high quality, fully impartial and professional service.  They have the expertise and knowledge to help people work together to resolve disagreements quickly and with very little paperwork, finding solutions that are right for the child or young person.
