We are a community led organisation in Halifax UK.

We formed as Halifax Unity CIC in 2022 to co-create spaces where everyone is welcome.

We embrace uniqueness and diversity.

However you identify in terms of ethnicity, gender, sexuality, age, language, health or background, and whatever your financial situation, you are welcome here. Our diversity is our strength and our wisdom.

We support resilience through solidarity.

When we come together and create connections between us and our communities, we are more resilient in the face of adversity. As Jo Cox said: "There is more in common than that which divides us."​

Our Mission

Our mission is to co-create a vibrant, diverse and resilient community in Halifax where everyone feels welcome and able to be themselves.

Together we will co-create conditions where all of us can relax, thrive, be authentic and fully express ourselves and our unique gifts.

Through spaces created by different people, and the connections between us, we will grow a strong network that is supportive and resilient.

Our Vision

There will be more opportunities in Halifax where people can meet, fully express themselves, support each other, get creative, feel inspired and share resources.

We will be more resilient in times of crisis, and experience more joy and connection, not limited by any aspect of our identity or access to resources.

Our community will be more equitable and working together for liberation for all.


Who we are

Halifax Unity is a CIC founded by Viv Slack (she/her) and Jaden Adams (he/him), now joined by 3 amazing directors Ashleigh May, Rachel Johnston and Ilham Adam.

We are a growing network of people and grassroots organisations living in and near Halifax who want to connect, organise and do more to unite our communities.

You can read about our community values and boundaries here

This community will be co-created by a diverse, wild and loving group of unique individuals who share our values.


We dream, organise, create and act together for a world that works for all.

Who this is for

We intentionally create spaces that are designed for and with people who are often marginalised for an aspect of their identity or way of being. This includes spaces for specific groups of people, and some that are open to all.

We run on a 'pay what you can' basis so that access to resources is not a barrier to inclusion. Multiple challenges including the hostile immigration system, the cost of living crisis and climate change are hitting many of us hard. Many of us feel isolated, or with limited choices. In creating more links between us and our communities we hope to find more joy and resilience even in hard times.

NOTE: We are not a support serviceThere are amazing support services in the city that provide specialist support and respond urgent needs. We signpost to relevant services as needed and provide a next step for people who are looking for community connections. We work alongside local organisations including Moms on a Mission, Calderdale Valley of Sanctuary,  Stand Up to Racism, St Augustine's Centre, Spotlight Faith Group and others, linking our communities of support. We welcome links with other groups to build more community resilience and stronger webs of support.


We are also part of the More In Common Network - a network of groups around the country who share Jo Cox's belief that "we have more in common than that which divides us'".
