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, 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.
Everyday People Making Change tells the iconic stories of Citizens UK leaders taking action and winning change in their communities. From millions of pounds in mental health funding, to a new Hate Crime Charter and a pay increase for over 5000 workers.
This section presents the impact of our work, providing useful insights for academic and public debates on key issues regarding social justice in the UK. All of our publications are available in digital format for free download.
Citizens UK has a growing team of professional Community Organisers, Projects, and other support staff. We are always looking out for talented and committed individuals and vacancies come up regularly!
