We are an independent not for profit company based in North West England - and working in partnership more widely.

Our core work is 'civic mediation': facilitation and dialogue, working through issues of contention and dispute, and addressing social conflicts and tensions.

We work with people positively on matters of contention, taking them through dialogue processes which unpack issues and tensions. Good relations work creates space for people themselves to work towards positive outcomes.

Our contribution can:

  • Build understanding between groups and communities that are at odds with each other...
  • Help develop agreements between agencies, elected representatives, community members and others...
  • Address polarising behaviour...
  • Work around conflicts, campaigns and disputes over business developments...
  • Explore community dynamics resulting from changing demography;
  • bring parties together who are in dispute over the control of facilities and initiatives...
  • And more...
