About Local Trust and the ITT

Dispute and conflict resolution in Big Local areas

Local Trust was established in 2012 to deliver Big Local, a National Lottery Community Fund-funded programme which committed £1m each to 150 neighbourhoods across England to make a lasting positive difference in their communities. At the heart of Big Local is a vision of empowered, resilient, dynamic, asset-rich communities making their own decisions on what is best for their area. Local Trust, our partners and people in Big Local areas are passionate about what we are doing and we believe that Big Local has the potential to support residents to increase their skills and confidence and make a lasting difference to where they live while bringing them together to make their areas even better places in which to live. However we know that people don’t always agree and that it’s normal for groups to experience disagreement and conflict. Therefore, we are interested in working with organisations that can support the resolution of disputes and conflict between people and groups in Big Local areas.


The purpose of this list is to enable mediators to easily find opportunities that they may find of interest and of use. Except where stated, these opportunities are not provided by the CMC and CMC takes no responsibility for these. The CMC will use its discretion in determining which opportunities to include, but will generally include those related to mediation and which may be of interest to our members.

If you have opportunities that you would like to have listed here, please e-mail secretariat@civilmediation.org with the brief details.
