COVID 19 UPDATE – Please be assured that Resolve West continues to be here to work with people who are experiencing conflict and/or have been affected by criminal activity. We as an agency are mindful that the circumstances associated with the impact of coronavirus has led to increased tensions, a rise in anti-social behaviour and/ or crime, as leisure and social facilities were shut down and people are forced to stay home, facing illness, uncertainty, and loss of income.

  • We continue to deliver all of our services across neighbourhoods, communities, with individuals, those at risk of homelessness, within the criminal justice system and have developed robust systems, enabling us to continue to deliver this support to help resolve conflict and repair harm.
  • We have adapted our services to ensure that our staff, volunteers and clients are not put at risk and have developed our work so that we can continue to provide support through telephone or video conferencing.
  • Our other services, such as training, briefings and awareness sessions can also now be provided through virtual platforms moving forward.

Resolve West (formerly Bristol Mediation) is an independent, charity with over 30 years’ experience of providing confidential services to enable people to resolve  conflict;  and working with victims of crime or Anti Social Behaviour to help to repair harm and for offenders to understand impact of actions and to have an opportunity to make amends.

Our expertise is in helping individuals and communities to have an opportunity to communicate directly or indirectly in a supported environment and to help people to find a way forward.  

We have made a film with some of our clients from our conflict resolution service who had themselves experienced conflict with their neighbours which enabled us to capture their stories .  We would like to thank all of the clients that were willing to share their stories, to enable others in conflict to find out more how we can help.  

We offer a range of restorative services to individuals, communities, neighbourhoods and organisations which includes: Conflict Coaching, Mediation and Restorative Justice to people experiencing conflict, harassment, discrimination, anti-social behaviour, crime.
