Through the method of Community Organising we enable local leaders to develop their voice and come together with the power and strategy to make real change.

Democracy in action

Our member organisations are our power base and we put people in the lead. We believe civil society is more effective if the organised institutions – like schools, churches or residents’ groups – work in alliance together. Every issue we work on is prioritised by our members.

The great achievements we’ve had in the last 30 years have been made possible through the hard work of thousands of people who’ve taken action together on the concerns facing them and their communities.

Our projects

Our projects, grown out of the many successful campaigns our members have created, help underrepresented groups, like low paid workers, refugees and new parents win justice, settle into our communities and achieve change.
