Disputes can arise in many areas of life, whether it’s a disagreement with a neighbour over trees or fences; disputes between members of a club; workplace disagreements; or noise from animals, machinery or cars.

The Dispute Settlement Centre of Victoria's (DSCV) purpose is to empower and assist the Victorian community to prevent and appropriately resolve issues, alleviate pressure on the judicial system and help the community to thrive.

To realise this vision, DSCV provides free dispute resolution services across Victoria, as well as training and accrediting mediators to national standards.
