Community Justice Centres (CJC) provide free mediation to help people solve disagreements (or resolve disputes) without going to court. We also provide other alternative dispute resolution services tailored to help people solve conflicts.
Our services are confidential, easy to use and voluntary. We also accept mandatory court referrals. There are no waiting lists and we provide services throughout NSW. We are funded by the NSW Government as part of the Department of Justice.
