Citizens UK is made up of hundreds of member organisations who are committed to taking action together for social justice and the common good.
We believe that faith, education, trade union 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.
By creating diverse and long lasting alliances of organisations in a locality, 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.
Each member organisation owns a stake in its local Citizens Chapter through its membership dues, enabling it to:
- Initiate and participate in local campaigns for social justice.
- Access training and leadership development opportunities for its leaders.
- Build stronger relationships with other local groups.
- Use Community Organising for institutional development.
- Benefit from the support of a professional Community Organiser.
Citizens UK currently has local Chapters in 17 areas of the UK and continues to grow.
Read on to find out why leaders from organisations like yours have found that institutional membership of Citizens UK better equips them to deliver on their vision, mission and strategy.
