About us

Leading the prevention and resolution of disputes.

Who we are

FairWay's purpose, vision, mission and values drive all that our business stands for. We deal with a wide range of people, and these values provide a constant litmus test for our success.

Each and every person in FairWay plays a significant role. A strong sense of teamwork is critical, as no individual can achieve excellence without the support and collaboration of team members. This applies to our staff and our network of contractor partners.

Our mission

Helping people in conflict move forward.

Our vision

To be the leading conflict management service provider by:

  • protecting consumers’ rights
  • assisting people to resolve disputes themselves, and
  • strengthening organisations’ reputation by improving their conflict capability.
