Welcome to Unity!

First established in 1987, Unity is a non-profit incorporated UK charity part-funded by Test Valley Borough Council and Hampshire County Council, working with local organisations to support vulnerable members of the Test Valley Community. With offices based in Andover and Romsey, we aim to bring people together.
