Our organisation was formed in 2011 by a small collective of service users and carers. Now with funding from the Scottish Government, we have grown into an informed organisation for others to turn to and seek advice, share experiences and feel supported around all aspects of Self-Directed Support.
We are now seeking additional members to join our

Unity (formerly known as Unity Enterprise) was set up in 1989.
The focus of the organisation initially was employment opportunities for young people who might otherwise be excluded or face significant barriers to employment.
Over the years, Unity has grown and developed, delivering a variety of services in different communities, and some of these continue today. Examples include work and training for people with learning disabilities, advice and support for carers of all ages, housing support to people affected by homelessness and catering services operated as Social Enterprises that offer additional training and work experience. We are always innovating and developing new projects to ensure our social impact for individuals and communities.
In January 2016, Unity experienced a change in leadership for the first time since its inception. The Board have supported a number of changes which have helped us build on the quality of our services, think about the future and direction of Unity, and explore how we can continue to have a positive impact. We are committed to our key aims of Equality, Inclusion and Opportunity.
We continue to grow and develop, with a variety of projects and initiatives planned for the near future. We are now seeking Board Members who share our core values, have a passion for social enterprise and will uphold our commitment to equality, inclusion and opportunity for all.

We have since built on our board membership, recognising the strength of wider representation. We hope to diversify our membership further, with respect to our guiding principles and with a key focus on welcoming those who share our core values.
