While learning to surf in Cornwall this week I received the good news that my application to join the CMC has been accepted.
This comes in the same week as a pilot scheme involving CMC members offering mediation services at Manchester County Court was announced, so I'll be looking into that straight away.
Whilst my own membership has been accepted I await news that NWM will itself become a registered provider so that we can continue to assist people in all sorts of disputes, as the CMC website itself says:
"The Civil Mediation Council is the recognised authority in the country for all matters related to civil, commercial, workplace and other non-family mediation" and whose stated mission is :-
"To inspire all sectors of society to use mediation when managing and resolving disputes through their (now our) values of: Excellence, Innovation & Growth, Informed Debate, Openness & Inclusion
