What is Global Mediation?
Global Mediation offers specialist facilitation and mediation services.
As a parent, the welfare of your children is of paramount importance.
For children with special education needs or ‘SEN’, disagreements about what course of action is in the best interests of the child and the one that most closely matches the child’s needs can often require the services of an experienced, independent mediator if no agreement can be reached.
Local Authorities are legally obliged to provide SEN mediation and disagreement resolution in relation to disputes between parents and carers and young people, schools and Local Authorities over your special education needs or, as a parent, those of your child.
We are an experienced provider of SEN mediation and disagreement resolution Services which will –
- improve the channels of communication and understanding between the parties
- progress towards and then reach realistic, practical solutions that meet the needs of all concerned, especially the child
- cause minimal disruption to the child’s education
Mediation is a confidential process (except in cases where there are child protection issues) and is conducted in a safe, neutral environment that allows for both parties to be listened to and understood. Our specialist SEN mediation team, all of whom have extensive training in and knowledge of the legislation and framework relating to SEN and health and social care, work closely with all concerned parties to achieve a fast, pragmatic and mutually-agreeable solution to all types of SEN disputes.
Who can use this service?
Anyone who has a disagreement in relation to disputes between parents and carers and young people, schools and Local Authorities over your special education needs or, as a parent, those of your child.
