Core has been involved in a number of mediations involving the charitable and not-for-profit sector.
In these situations the ability to address issues calmly and constructively in a confidential setting, ensuring a speedy conclusion to what are often difficult and personally distressing difficulties, can be very valuable to the organisation’s ongoing wellbeing – and those whom it serves.
Clients include a body providing food and shelter for homeless people in a major city; a charity in the building preservation sector; churches and other religious organisations, and a project designed to meet the needs of disabled youngsters.
Issues covered include:
• contractual difficulties
• health and safety
• management and employment relationships
• the role of trustees
• future direction
• differences of principle and values
