Unite Community Membership describes itself as a scheme that "brings people outside of the workplace into the union community, linking families and workplaces together to strive for a better, more caring society. Community membership places organising and activism at the centre of local communities: it provides a structure through which people can use their political voices to campaign for change".
It was initiated by trade union and encourages people to participate through organising & campaigning. Unite Community Membership is national in orientation and concerned with anti-discrimination, equality & social justice, economy, education, health, neighbourhood & community, public services, and workplace.
It was launched in 2011 and is ongoing.
