Welcome to the Centre for Peaceful Solutions

Home of the Dialogue Road Map

The Centre for Peaceful Solutions is a social change charity with a vision of a society able to live in harmony with its values without violence and abuse. By working with people who experience conflict and violence in families, organisations and communities, we have developed The Dialogue Road Map – a framework for nonviolent communication which creates effective relationships, mutual respect, self responsibility and shared accountability. Our focus is on building restorative communities within prisons, schools and communities.
