Craig’s examination of the value of mediation for elderly people consists of three parts. In the first part she describes the social context of conflicts that can affect older, disabled and mentally frail people. With this in mind, in the second part she discusses the development of a particular project, the Elder Mediation Project. This is a self-help group providing mediation services for an elderly constituency. It grew out of the situations and interests of staff involved in Mediation UK, a national voluntary organization. In the third part Craig highlights certain cases as examples of mediation of issues affecting elderly people.
