Diane Marr, development manager at the Edinburgh-based charity and the lead behind its SCCR initiative, said: “We want to try to do something that helps pass on some expert advice to those people on how to resolve conflict and play even just a small part in trying to heal some of the rifts that have come about.”

The charity said it is keen for members of the public who have resolved their own differences over the independence referendum to share their experiences on social media.
