Frequently Asked Questions
We will be honest and tell you, the best thing you can do it arrange a call back to find out! We are a not for profit so it is not our goal to “win your business”. We will, however, keep note of when your contracts are due and contact you closer to that time. We will ensure you do not automatically roll onto overpriced out of contract rates.
Other businesses offer support to reduce core running costs, many even offer it at no cost to your organisation – however, when they are paid a commission to place your charity or business with a new supplier, they will keep it for profit. One Unite Partnership (CIC) is different as we use our commission to generate grants that you can use for one-off or on-going projects that will stabilise or grow your organisation.
