People with disabilities who find themselves in conflicts in their daily lives may receive mediation services.
The mediation services are provided in Jerusalem but are open to people living anywhere in Israel.
The services generally entail a registration fee, but in some cases are provided free of charge.
- People with disabilities may often find themselves in various disagreements and conflicts in all areas of life. Sometimes these conflicts stem directly from the disabilities, while sometimes the person with disabilities may simply find him/herself at a disadvantage because of them.
- Many of these conflicts involve people they encounter on a daily basis, including family members, neighbors, co-workers, service providers, and the local and national government bureaucracies with whom they must handle issues related to rights, benefits, and entitlements.
- The mediation services offer a unique solution for the special needs of people with disabilities, and may help improve their quality of life, standing, and integration into the community in which they live.
- The services are provided by mediators who have special expertise related to the interplay of mediation and disabilities.
- The mediators help both sides in conflict create dialogue among themselves in order to clarify disagreements and misunderstandings.
