About Us

We are passionate about being part of a positive change in our community. We aim to empower communities through health, wellness, and contribution.

Meet the UNITED Team

Project UNITED is made up of three friends, and one wife. Originally conceived by Andrew Knight, he soon cunningly manipulated his Wife, Krystal, into playing a role, and from there, found support from two other friends, Alastair, and Stephen, all of whom bring a passion for “community” and long-term business experience with them.

We started Project UNITED in early 2015 and is ultimately a voluntary Not-For-Profit project we undertake to enable us to deliver health and wellness education and events in our community.

We all have our own day jobs, but commit ourselves voluntary to Project UNITED because it’s just something we want to do – to combine our resources and skills to provide a fundamental service to our community that isn’t currently being provided.

We raise money through the sales of our clothing, and supplying local health services businesses with wholesale mobility products – foam rollers, trigger point balls, resistance bands etc.

If you are interested in being involved with our team, by all means drop us a line. We’d love to hear from you – united@projectunited.com.au.

Our Skills

Each team member has upwards of 15 years experience in their relevant discipline and all bring significant value to the Project UNITED movement. It is certainly not easy running a Not-For-Profit venture around regular day jobs, but it certainly is satisfying.

Our Team

It’s certainly not easy, but completely worth it.

Our Mission

Our mission is to strengthen communities through wellness and contribution.

Our objective is to use the profits received from the sale of these items to conduct our own local events relating to the importance of health, wellness, happiness, community engagement and contribution – similar to the TED movement but with a health and wellbeing focus. 

Project UNITED is a project built out of the desire to give back, rather than simply growing personal wealth. Our day-jobs afford us our lifestyles; Project UNITED is our way of contributing back to our community.

Our Motivation

We believe that the essence to a fulfilling life is through good health and community engagement, but this message is often diluted by profit-driven health brands that are concerned primarily with their balance sheet. Positive, consistent health and wellness information is becoming more and more blurred by sales agendas and market share pursuits. Project UNITED aims to give our community a bias free source of information. It is important to acknowledge that the Project UNITED team are spectacularly average human beings. No one is any more successful or talented than anyone else you will meet in your life. But using what we know and who we have met along the way, we can combine our resources and provide a service that we believe will provide value to those around us.

If you want to stay on top of what we are up to, we are on Facebook and Instagram. You are always welcome to drop us a line and ask questions or make suggestions. We welcome the feedback and hope at some point we see you at one of our events.
