We’re bringing together everyday people and local organisations to build a better, fairer society.
Citizens UK is made up of hundreds of member organisations that are committed to taking action together for social justice and the common good.
What is a member?
A Citizens UK member is an organisation that joins up with other organisations in their local area to make change together, supported by a professional community organiser.
What organisations can become members?
We believe that faith, education, trade union, charity and community organisations play a vital role as civil society institutions with deep and long-standing roots in their local areas. Through voluntary participation in these organisations, people build relationships, trust, vision and hope - and learn how to work constructively with those they might disagree with, to focus on what they have in common.
Our members range from churches, mosques and synagogues, to primary schools, colleges and universities, to charities, unions and community groups.
How much does becoming a member cost?
Each member will have a stake in its local Citizens UK chapter through paying membership dues. Membership fees are based on the size and income of an organisation and this can be discussed with your local chapter's organiser as part of the joining process.
What does membership give me?
By creating diverse and long-lasting alliances of organisations in an area, Citizens UK helps community leaders to build the power they need to get a seat at the table with decision-makers and negotiate for change, as part of a stronger whole. As a member, you will:
- Initiate and participate in local campaigns for social justice.
- Access training and leadership development opportunities for leaders in your organisation.
- Build stronger relationships with other local groups.
- Use community organising to strengthen your organisation.
- Benefit from the support of a professional community organiser.
Read on to find out why leaders from organisations like yours have found that membership of Citizens UK better equips them to deliver on their vision, mission and strategy.
