The team are experienced conflict resolution practitioners and dialogue facilitators, having worked with many groups and organisations.

St Ethelburga’s Centre for Reconciliation & Peace… exists to equip individuals, communities and workplaces to build relationships across divisions. They have a distinctive approach focusing on empowerment and mutual listening, based on values of a deep understanding of diversity and difference.
