What we do

Community Organising is a method of social change with a rich history in the US Civil Rights movement and a 30-year track record here in the UK. Our approach is to use Community Organising to build diverse alliances of local communities, capable of making change on a range of issues for the long-term.

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.
