Advocating for people
big and small.

With a collective voice, we achieve more.
Join us as we rally together and face injustice head-on.

Raising a voice and restoring community​

Uniting for a cause.

At Uniting, we come alongside our consumers, striving to inspire people, enliven communities and confront injustice. 

Positive change is possible if we work together. Speaking up and standing as one, we can influence our world and protect our most vulnerable people. 

By delivering a strong consumer voice in our advocacy work, we include:

Your voice
Consumers are heard by decision-makers.
Your experience

Our advocacy is based on lived experience.

Your choices
Consumers share in decision making about our advocacy.
