Conflict Resolution Services
Cyrenians is now one of the largest and most well-established organisations in Scotland promoting best practice in, and providing services for, conflict resolution, mediation and support for families and young people. Conflict happens for a myriad of reasons, across our lives, relationships and communities, sometimes with minimal consequences - but there are times its impact can be overwhelming, making life seem impossible and the future impenetrable. Our award-winning work offers progressive models of earlier intervention with the aim of promoting and supporting best practice in mediation, reducing conflict and relationship breakdown - the predominant reason young people present as homeless across the UK.
Across our conflict resolution services we provide a consistent approach, working with young people, parents/carers and professionals, believing that if you get the relationships right within families this can have a profound effect on mental health and wellbeing, community resilience, educational attainment and much, much more.
