"They go through a six-day training regime, then they go and visit each party in their own home first and try to understand what the situation is. " The disputes can range from music being played late at night, cars parked in the wrong place and unruly pets, to more serious issues like abusive or antisocial behaviour. Mrs Williams said: "We try to get both parties to a neutral venue where they each have ten minutes to say what the problem is. Like many other charities, MSMS is struggling with the economic climate. Mrs Williams also wants more people to volunteer as mediators.
