Established in 1995 our service has a proven track record of helping people to resolve conflict. We facilitate positive, constructive discussions; enabling people to hear one another and to resolve their differences.

We provide Family Mediation across Sussex. Family Mediation meetings are available via videoconference or in-person at our office in St Leonards.

This is a fee-based service but we hold a contract with the Legal Aid Agency to deliver family mediation FREE OF CHARGE to those eligible.

NEIGHBOURHOOD MEDIATION - Hastings & Rother Mediation offers mediation to residents in the Borough of Hastings and the District of Rother. This service is free if you are referred by the Police or Optivo Housing Association or by Rother District Council.

TIME 2 TALK – Intergenerational Mediation between children/young people and their parent/s or carer/s. We support families across Hastings & Rother to help them communicate better and work together to find solutions to the difficulties they are facing within the family. This is a free service.

Hastings and Rother Mediation Serviced and Mediation Plus to merge

New Merged Service

Hastings and Rother Mediation Service (1100825) and Mediation + (Wealden, Lewes, and Eastbourne) (1116072) are in the process of merging their services into a newly formed East Sussex wide conflict resolution charity. This will be known as ‘Mediation Plus’ (registered charity number 1202295). This will enable us to thrive as a local charity, increasing our capacity while sharing resources and best practice.

The merger will take place in July 2023, and we will be celebrating this across our social media platforms shortly.

To enable the new charity to continue to provide our services and to support the local community, we will be transferring data gathered from 1st April 2022 onwards to the new service. All other data will remain in the ownership of the original charities in accordance with the original data owner’s data protection policy. This does not affect your rights under data protection law. For more information, please contact us on admin@hrmediation.co.uk.
