Unity in the Community was founded following the murder of George Floyd and the resulting global outcry surrounding systemic and institutional racism, that still exists in society today. Which deeply affects black people’s ability to survive and prosper in the global economy, participate in mainstream society and positively engage on an equal playing field.
Our goal is to provide a respected and credible voice to articulate the needs of every person in black and BAME communities in the UK. We will drive development, create opportunities and influence positive change by acting as an infrastructure body to provide accessible programmes that facilitate long-term and sustainable progress for black and BAME communities.
We aim to build essential resources that benefit all areas of life – education, employment, health, sports and economic development. We work on a local and national level to support community groups while engaging with major strategic partners to develop and deliver key objectives and priorities, for black and BAME communities.
