Geographical remit: 


The Unity Project exists to support people who have 'no recourse to public funds' (NRPF) as a result of their immigration status and who are facing homelessness or extreme poverty because of this exclusion. 

We run weekly casework sessions every Tuesday to assist people to apply to have the NRPF condition removed from their visa so that they can access the welfare support they urgently need.  We provide a hot, nutritious lunch and childcare for all of our applicants and volunteers. 


We run a weekly casework session where a diverse team of trained volunteers work one-on-one with applicants to make ‘Change of Conditions’ applications under the supervision of two immigration advisors. Every applicant is given an appointment with a housing advisor, who can also do some follow-up work.

We provide training and resources to other organisations.

We also provide bimonthly workshops to teach applicants how to make their own immigration applications.
