(Updated 5 January 2021)

Following the Prime Minister’s announcement of a new national lockdown on 4 January 2021, we will of course, be complying with the new requirements. The health and safety of our clients, our team and their families, and the community around us continues to be our priority at this time.

We would like to reassure our clients and other business contacts, however, that we have robust, tried and tested plans that enables all of our team to work remotely, when required to do so, and we do not anticipate any significant reduction in our delivery capability or levels of service. As we demonstrated throughout 2020, we will continue to be responsive and deliver in line with our clients’ expectations.

We continue to monitor the situation on a regular basis and will provide clients with updates specific to them. Please do not hesitate to get in touch with your usual UNW contact who will be happy to answer any queries you may have.

All our partners and team members can be contacted in the usual way, either via their direct line, mobile, or by email. You can also continue to get in touch with us via email at enquiries@unw.co.uk or via our switchboard on 0191 243 6000. Our Citygate offices continue to be manned 24/7 for the delivery of any post or documents.

We look forward to welcoming you back again soon.
