Community mediation, run by Uniting Communities Mediation Service, provides people with an alternative to court action. Although the service gets some government funding, it is not run by a government agency and has no power to force people to attend or stick to any agreement that is reached. The kinds of matters handled include neighbour, strata title, community organisation, care management, workplace, and disability related disputes. The service is provided free of charge to eligible people. Interpreters can be provided when necessary. Mediation can be provided in some regional areas and in various locations around Adelaide. For more information, contact Uniting Communities Mediation Service on 8342 1800 or visit their website here.
