This is a very difficult message to write but we would like to inform you that following a meeting of the Board of Directors, we have agreed to schedule the planned closure of Darlington ARQ.
We have achieved so much over the last three years; and we are hopeful, that in some way that work will continue; but the current climate is dictating that our organisation is no longer going to be sustainable in the long term. So we feel that it is better to have a structured planned closure now rather than it being forced on us in the future. We wanted to be upfront with you all and tell you this as soon as possible.
In terms of a timescale, we are unsure of the exact close date as of now, but we will be ceasing to take referrals in to our counselling service as of the end of January and we will be working to finish our work with our existing clients by the end of March. All counselling appointments will continue and any other work booked in to the calendar as of the date of this notice will be honoured. We will contact all clients and colleagues individually to advise of this also.
Andi Cull, Sarah Harker and the entire Director Team; would like to say a massive thank you to everyone for everything that has been committed to the organisations since we started three years ago.
Our Board of Directors and the volunteer team will remain in place and will guide you through this process as we wind things down. Any queries can be directed to our CEO, Andi Cull who you can contact by email on email@example.com or by phone on 01325 788 203.
