Good news - we're open for limited services in Wembley. Ujima House is now actively under refurbishment and we'd love your help in making the space the best it can be.
During this interim period donations and continued membership are greatly appreciated while we transition to our new space.

Equipment available for general use:
- hard hats
- A full-face visor
- Ear defenders
- Disposable gloves
- Non-disposable gloves
- Dust masks
Hidden dangers of safety equipment
Don't presume you're safer wearing the gear than without it. Gloves, for instance, provide an opportunity for liquid nitrogen to remain in contact with skin & burn you when a non-gloved user would have been able to shake off the liquid nitrogen. Wearing gloves with any power tool is a bad idea; you're more likely to get pulled into the machine if you do make contact with it, and you're not going to have the same awareness of where your hands end as you do without gloves.
