After 24 years Unite is ending its mediation services in Teesside and the North East and North Yorkshire. Having closely evaluated the financial situation going forward, Unite’s trustees have reluctantly concluded that Unite should close its doors at the end of March 2017.
Unite will close on 31st March 2017.
The Trustees said ‘Many people will be very sad to see Unite close. Thanks to Helen Lowrie’s inspiring commitment to mediation services and her team of dedicated and quality-driven mediators, Unite’s services have been second to none’. The Trustees were very reluctant to recommend closure, however, feel that Unite should close at the top of its game and having won 3 national awards/accreditations in 2016.
There will be an event to celebrate Unite’s many achievements for anyone who has been involved with Unite in the summer.
