Overcoming difficulties

Hit a snag? Finding P&C-things difficult? Perhaps we can help.

Individualised assistance

Through our Schools and Communities in Partnership Program, Council offers specific assistance for the needs of your P&C. This can involve a Council staff member attending your meetings or mediating exchanges between different parties. We are also able to follow-up specific difficulties with the Education Directorate. Please contact us to discuss your issues and we will work with you to find a way to assist. 

Other resources

If conflict is threatening to damage your P&C, it is worth taking some time to understand conflict and how it can be defused.

This US resource has some great suggestions for dealing with difficult people in the P&C context.

This excellent Conflict Resolution toolkit from NSW Volunteering provides practical advice and steps to follow.

The Conflict Resolution Service in Canberra can assist with mediation and training.
