We are delighted to announce that following a member and stakeholder consultation, Test Valley Community Services (TVCS) has changed its name to ‘Unity’ with the strapline, ‘Putting Unity in the Community’, a reflection of the work that the organisation do to support local communities and individuals.

Dorothy Baverstock, Unity Chairman said, “The decision to change the name to reflect a modern, forward thinking organisation was made by the Board of Trustees in 2013 and has not been a decision taken lightly.  Of course, there was no way we would have done this without consulting our members which took place throughout the summer culminating in a launch at the AGM in November.

To reflect the diversity of our operation, the design reflects the various aspects of our work such as Unity – Volunteering, Unity – Transport, Unity – for Charities, Unity – Finance and we are thrilled to be able to promote all our services in this way”.

The organisation, established in 1982 is recognised as a caring, community based service provider and believes that this rebrand not only reflects its development and vision for the future but that the logo represents a continued commitment to building successful relationships and the delivery of quality services in an ever changing environment.

This is an exciting time for the organisation and we would like to thank everyone for their support, Anton Visual who have inspired and supported us through this process and the Lloyds Foundation for funding this important transformation.
