COMMUNITY ORGANISing

When communities work together, the possibilities for positive change are endless. Community organising is the work of bringing people together to take action around their common concerns and overcome social injustice. Community organisers reach out and listen, connect and motivate people to build their collective power to effect change. When people are organised, communities get heard and power begins to shift creating real change for good.

Community organising is tried and tested way of effecting change. Thousands of organisers across the world, including in the UK, have developed the approach which has come to be known as community organising. We build on this history.

Our definition and framework is not the only one, but it aims to encompass the range of approaches and methods which are collectively known as community organising. ‘Wigan and Leigh Community Charity will be hosting Community Organising training from February 2021 with opportunities for Community Organiser posts created from August 2021’
