Get directions

Our annual Get Active event is returning to Croyde Bay from 17 – 19 May 2024! This year’s theme is “organising for equality, respect, and fair treatment”.

Over three days of inspirational talks, training and networking, attendees will learn new tools and methods to help tackle issues and campaign for change. We will also be celebrating UNISON’s year of LGBT+ workers with a dedicated panel and workshop.

Our aim with our Get Active 2024 event is to inspire members to start their journey with UNISON, build their confidence and to learn and develop new skills to tackle issues and effect change. It is broadly aimed at encouraging members to get involved who haven’t been active in their union yet.
