Community projects and charities we have supported include:
The Resolution Centre - Peer Mediation
Viberts has joined forces with The Resolution Centre to become the primary sponsor of their Peer Mediation programme until 2025.
Launched in 2021 the Peer Mediation initiative has been developed to equip young people with the skills to help others resolve a disagreement or conflict in a constructive, non-violent way.
Children who have been through the programme say that the skills they have learnt have allowed them to successfully mediate in disagreements at school, within their families and within the wider community.
