Bye Bye London, Hello Birmingham.

The time has come for InUnity to hang up our hat in London, where it all began 13 years ago, and focus all our energies on Birmingham and the West Midlands.  It's a decision that has been incredibly hard to make, but one that as an organisation we need to do in order to sustain and develop our work here in Brum.

We have handed over several of our key projects to other great delivery partners and therefore hopefully for most of our service users, you will not be too inconvenienced.  So thanks for the good times, the great memories and we hope that the legacy of InUnity lives on.  Farewell London town.

It's been 12 years but....

After running dance sessions on the Roundshaw estate for over 12 years, the final dance was danced on Friday 12th February 2016.

Unfortunately, due to low attendance at both street dance and cheerleading, InUnity had to take the decision to close these sessions.  But, with new projects in the pipeline we are excited about trying some new initiatives on Roundshaw.

We understand that for those of you attending these sessions, it's not great news.  However as a small, local organisation we cannot sustain the loss in finances.

Please do keep an eye on our website for news of other sessions soon to start, and by all means send us a message of ideas you want to see on your estate.

Foodie Friday's! Who's a Foodie then?

Thanks to our partnership with Metropolitan Housing, InUnity is delivering a brand new programme at the Phoenix Centre every Friday!

For a 6-week programme, families can attend and learn new cooking skills, coupled with activities for the kids & some sharing time for those parents / grandparents / carers.

Foodie Fridays is aimed at Roundshaw residents, supporting our Move iT! programme on the estate.  The first 6-week pilot programme starts this Friday (4:00 - 7:00pm) at the Phoenix Centre.  But don't worry if you can't make it - just send us a message and come along next week.  And please feel free to spread the word!

Everyone's a Foodie! And everyone loves a Friday!   Details here
