SOM is nelighted to record that its present workplace and employment mediation course brings to 500 the number of people it has reached in the last year with trainign and education programmes.  This is set to be beaten over the next 12 months with the programmes launching in Africa and the West Indies.  We are delighted and enthused by the suppor tof our Trustees and volunteers, and look forward to delivering an astonishing 12 months. This will include setting up the Free Mediation Project which is using the facilities at 218 Strand to offer free mediation to those who would not otherwise use the process.  Jane Hodge is the latest mediator to give her time for free to the Project this week. Truly an excellent time for the Society.
