We have a packed timetable of events and actions to mobilise for in the coming weeks and months. All of this costs money and we urgently need increase our regular monthly income to be able to properly staff our national office, and fund these exciting initiatives.
We are asking all supporters of the People’s Assembly to make a regular donation, however big or small. Donations can be set up on our website. Thank you for your continued support.
Unite Community will be participating in a number of these events across the country – watch this website and keep in touch with the Durham Centre for full details nearer the time.
