Halifax Unity building community links in our communities

Halifax Unity is a new community interest company on a mission to create stronger links between our communities in Halifax, to co-create our shared future, build trust and resilience.

We create spaces for specific groups to come together with shared intention for mutual support and solidarity, and we co-design events and projects that bring these groups together to make new links. We believe we have many of the answers we need within our communities, and we are stronger together. If you share this vision of unity in our diversity and co-creating our shared future, we would love to connect with you and hear your ideas 🙂 Here are a few things coming up…

– Trans and allies group – A safe and inclusive group for anyone that identifies as trans or gender non conforming and allies (partners/parents/friends). Get in touch if you would like to find out more and please pass on to family, friends, colleagues and people who use your services and may appreciate the connection.

– Improv / drama group – We are planning a new project for the new year combining play and self expression with opportunities for seldom heard voices to come forward. Whether you are interested in learning to act, to gain confidence to be who you are, to play at being different characters, or if you have a story to tell, or simply want to try something new, get in touch. We would particularly love this group to work for people in the most deprived areas of Halifax/Calderdale and for anyone who feels excluded or finds it hard to access other spaces. Everyone is welcome here. Get in touch if you want to know more.
