About Unity:

The Unity Centre gives practical support and solidarity to all asylum seekers and other migrants in Scotland. The Centre has been running for almost 10 years now – initially founded in March 2006, we have a tiny office that is a 1 minute walk from the Home Office building in Glasgow.

We provide practical support and unconditional solidarity for migrants – sharing information and making referrals so people can access food, clothing, shelter, asylum support, other support, advice, legal representation and much more.

Often we work in emergency situations, so people don’t have to sleep on the streets or can access the care they need when they are at their most vulnerable. We are a safe and welcoming space for people as they navigate the often brutal and always bureaucratic asylum and immigration systems.

We are open Monday to Friday 9:30am – 5pm. We also run a 24 hour, 7 days a week emergency phone line. Unity does not receive any regular funding, we can only exist with the small but very valued donations that people who care about what we do give us. Unity is run entirely by volunteers and it is non-hierarchical, there are no staff on salaries, no hidden costs.

Having recently moved offices, The Unity Centre is in urgent need of funds to help with rent, phone bills, office supplies and other costs associated with running the space. Donations can be made via Unity’s website site, as well as on the night, all are very much appreciated, especially as The Unity Centre’s work is needed more than ever.
