Mediation And Community Support Ltd (MACS) is an independent,
voluntary organisation providing mediation in disputes between neighbours, in families between parents and their
teenagers, and in the workplace.
MACS is a registered training provider specialising in alternative dispute resolution methods. Mediation is increasingly recognised as one of the most positive dispute resolution tools and is widely used in the public and private sector. Our team of trained, approved mediators have experience in dealing with a wide variety of cases, enabling people to find workable solutions in difficult situations.
Aims Our Cookies Policy
Mediation And Community Support aims to:
- develop, promote and deliver a mediation service for the benefit of the general public and so enable people to find workable solutions in difficult situations
- educate people in the nature and causes of conflict and the use of peaceful conflict resolution methods such as mediation
- generate volunteering and employment opportunities and services for the benefit of individuals and local communities.
Mediation And Community Support began work in the towns of Leamington Spa and Whitnash in 1999.
From 1999 to 2012 MACS has grown from a small, locally focused volunteer group to an incorporated Company Limited by Guarantee with Registered Charity Status employing four workers providing a broad range of mediation services and training across three districts covering mid and south Warwickshire.
Volunteer mediators from across the districts have been recruited, trained and supported in their work on cases in their local communities. Links have been formed with other agencies providing support and complimentary services to maintain a flow of referrals and ensure MACS is operating within the existing network of services.
We are grateful to the Lloyds TSB Foundation, local Churches, Leamington Town Trust
and Warwick District Council for ensuring the future of the Service. We are also grateful to WDC and
other local organisations for their practical support.
The service is strongly supported by our team of volunteer mediators who provide a
professional service to the community. People who commit to volunteering with us receive free National
Open College Network accredited Training in Mediation Skills.
