The Unity Project
We co-founded this project to provide practical support to vulnerable migrants in our community, including helping with legal casework. Its weekly drop-in center is held at our building in Islington. Volunteers also help with a host of support services, from providing catering to running a creche. The number of successful applications continues to grow, and we're committed to continuing this program.
We've recently launched regular incubator sessions for passionate people who want to make a difference. Together we can hone ideas, propose projects, access training, contacts and space, and become a collective force for good.
Working with Citizens UK, we're pressing for more robust enforcement against 'rogue' landlords who abuse vulnerable tenants and fail to care adequately for their properties.
New Unity donates all Sunday collections to carefully chosen local charities. Many thousands of pounds have gone to help worthy causes in our community. To see who we've supported, click here.
In 2008, we became the first religious establishment in Britain to refuse to carry out any weddings until all couples had equal marriage rights. We're proud of our role in helping to propel a national movement toward full marriage equality.
