Unite, the UK’s largest union, is opening a community centre in Doncaster to support residents.

The new centre at 95 Netherhall Road, will be open Tuesdays and Wednesdays between 10am and 3pm offering help and support with welfare problems and unemployment.

The centre will also provide a place for people to learn new skills and become a hub for the community to campaign on local issues including welfare changes.

Unite regional secretary Karen Reay said: “This is an exciting development which brings Unite back into the heart of our local communities. Our members can be confident that we are aware of the local issues and that Unite is seeking to work with the people of Doncaster to address them.

“We will be working with local campaign groups so we can ensure that our members’ voices can be heard and that issues that matter to them are top of the local agenda.”

Unite regional community coordinator Joe Rollin said: “I am pleased that we are opening this centre in Doncaster where the local community is in great need of support.”
