Mediating Skills for Successful Common Grazings


People skills for successful common grazings committees

Calling all crofters, clerks and committee members!

We are holding online meetings to help you increase the effectiveness and harmony of your common grazings committee.

With many users of a common, with different needs, disagreements can arise.  This workshop will  look at disputes and disagreements  and  how they  escalate and will demonstrate how skills and techniques used in mediation can help to effectively manage and resolve disputes .

At the end of the workshop you will be able to  –

  • Understand some of the causes of disputes and how they escalate
  • Use a number of tools used in mediation to resolve disputes and disagreements
  • Understand the benefits of mediation and how to access it

Previous participants have said that they have found these meetings really helpful for difficult situations; “Very informative and helpful presentation. The tools and techniques will be particularly useful as will understanding the needs of both parties.”

If you aren’t able to make one of the meetings, or it is fully booked, more will be held on the following dates:

Thursday 4  February

Tuesday 2 March

Thursday 18th March

Wednesday 24th March


With more later in the year.

We hope to see you at one of the meetings and find it as helpful as practical as previous crofting attendees.
