A little about me

My name is Steve Scarre. I'm an experienced, professional mediator based in Yorkshire, and a fellow of the Civil Mediation Council. While I cannot be more specific about my clients, I can say that I've conducted high-level mediations involving a major political party, a 'household name' organisation, national charities, local business organisations, and large educational institutions.
