Sheffield shines with Mediation

SoM launches project with Helena Kennedy Centre 31st July 2018


We are pleased to report that SoM have been working closely with Sheffield Hallam University and the Helena Kennedy Centre to provide training to students in Mediation. We are delighted to be working with institutions that are value driven and are striving to make a difference to society and through projects such as ours. This is part of the Free Mediation Project initiative which we are working on with Universities including Kings College.

The first (pilot course) for up to 30 students will take place in Sheffield in June 2019 and will be followed by a mediation competition.  Chair of Trustees, and freeman of the city of Sheffield, Jonathan Dingle said:

"I am delighted to be working in a ceity so close to my heart, and this course, showing all the vision and ideas for which the Helena Kennedy Centre and SHU are renowned, will be an icon with a strong local commitment.  The SDociety cannot wait to deliver the training and go on from there to do something very special."
