Southwark Mediation Centre


Service features

Established in 1986, Southwark Mediation Centre (SMC) is one of the oldest mediation services in the UK.


We deploy more than 20 experienced mediators and trainers to deliver community mediation and conflict resolution services throughout the London Borough of Southwark, and we work in several neighbouring boroughs through LCMC’s Pan-London referral system.


We also offer family mediation and workplace mediation services and provide specialist support for the development and management of peer mediation schemes within schools and colleges.  The award-winning peer mediation scheme for students at Bacon’s College, Rotherhithe, is among Southwark Mediation Service’s landmark achievements - Several former members of the Bacon’s College student mediation team are now active SMC community mediators.


SMC’s aim is to help create stronger and more successful communities, workplaces, and centres of education.
