- We are Mid-Surrey Mediation Service, a registered charity (No. 1051105), established in 1994. We are funded wholly by grants and donations and are totally independent of any other organisation.
- We help people who have arguments, rows or disputes with their neighbours to sort things out and move on with their lives.
- Any kind of neighbourhood dispute can be considered for mediation. Common ones include noise, boundary disputes, parking, high hedges or trees, abusive behaviour and harassment.
- We operate in Epsom & Ewell and Mole Valley in the county of Surrey. Click here to find out if your area is covered
- Our mediators are fully trained volunteers who have attended a recognised course in community mediation
- You can contact us directly if you need our help. Neighbourhood disputes are also referred to us by organisations such as the police, local housing associations or the council.
How we can help
With the help of mediators, neighbours in dispute can:
- Speak, listen and be listened to
- Define and clarify the issues at stake
- Express differences and explain how they feel
- Improve communication and understanding
- Reach an agreement more quickly than with a formal process
- Resolve their disputes confidentially
- Reduce stress levels and improve relationships, even if an agreement is not reached
How mediation works
Mediation is a unique method of conflict resolution in which everyone is a winner
With a greater understanding of why problems are occurring, people can come to agreement about how to resolve difficulties.
Consider how the future looks without trying mediation…

“Thank you, meeting through you with our neighbour helped solve the problem before it went out of control.”
