National Volunteer and Philanthropy Centre (NVPC)
to foster the spirit of giving in Singapore.

What is mediation?
During mediation, a trained neutral third party will facilitate a conversation between you and your neighbour to reach a mutually acceptable agreement. The mediator will not provide the solutions or make a decision for the parties. The mediator controls the process so that parties can discuss the issues and arrive at their own solutions in a calm and objective manner.
How can I file my claim at the Community Disputes Resolution Tribunal (CDRTs)*?
The CDRTs* are housed at the State Courts located at 1 Havelock Square, Singapore 059724. Forms can be obtained there.
*The CDRTs will be ready in the second half of 2015.
