The Cloud

But now we think this is not enough - if mediation is to grow in ambition, then opportunities for dialogue and conversation need to grow too. Whilst regulation and standards are critical to the future credibility of family mediation, we have to aim higher; opportunities to meet outside the structures, to stimulate, challenge, invent and imagine are even more critical. We will do this in two mutually supportive ways:

  • our Specialist CPD programme
  • The Cloud, where we encourage debate and discussion

Our Cloud is certainly full of information, but it also has its feet on the ground. The image above is of The Cloud, a hill above the Cheshire Plain which provides a viewpoint, perspective and context for the whole of the surrounding area, and is easily visible from the M6 and West Coast mainline, linking our new partners through Stafford.

"We went up to the top of the highest hill
and stopped still
Somewhere in between
The waxing and the waning wave
Somewhere in between
What the song and the silence say"

(Kate Bush - Aerial)

    "It's cloud illusions I recall, I really don't know clouds at all"

    Joni Mitchell - Both Sides Now
