Objective 2:
Develop Models of Mediation

Action 1 - Intercultural Liaison Volunteers

The Project aims to train community representatives as Intercultural Liaison Volunteers (ILV) to act as a link between communities and their Local Authority. The ILVs, who are themselves community activists, will operate within Local Authority housing estates and will remain neutral.

Before undertaking the role, selected individuals will receive appropriate training, facilitated by the Project, to enable them to work with people from different communities and with the Local Authority in order to help settle situations of cultural misunderstanding. Follow up support for each of the ILVs will be provided by trainer.
