Uniting for Peace, a leading UK peace organisation, was established in 2010 with the union of World Disarmament Campaign and Action for UN Renewal, two bodies with over sixty years of campaigning and peace education experience. Since 2010, Uniting for Peace has held twenty high-profile events on key global peace issues. The global vision of Uniting for Peace is summed-up in its “4D Charter”: disarmament, demilitarisation, development and democracy.
Be a Peacemaker.....could help.

HELP UNITING FOR PEACE FINANCIALLY
Uniting for Peace is funded almost exclusively by its members and supporters. The work of peace depends on your generous help, whether it is through fundraising, donations, or remembering Uniting for Peace in your will. Here are some ideas of how you might be able to help UFP financially:
Hold a dinner party/coffee morning/lunch and ask for donations for Uniting for Peace.
Recruit friendly musicians to put on a concert for Uniting for Peace.
WILL FOR PEACE
Legacies have been essential for the work of Uniting for Peace and its organisational predecessors (World Disarmament Campaign and Action for UN Renewal). By leaving a legacy, you will ensure that the voice of peacemakers continues to be heard.
Perhaps you can offer help in collecting and presenting important information and ideas related to on-going wars and arms trade in which the UK is involved, the Military-Industrial Complex, peace and nonviolence.
From time to time, we have research projects which we give to volunteers to complete so please get in touch with us to find out what research projects are available.
Be the local voice of Uniting for Peace. You can find out about peace related meetings and demonstrations at the Network for Peace Events calendar.
If you are linked with a local church/mosque/synagogue or other faith community centre, you can help spread the peace message by to trying to get it involved. Uniting for Peace Churches & Inter-Faith Peace Work promotes faith-based peace events, e.g. Christian services and inter-faith events linked to the UN International Peace Day September 21.
