Introduction to Community Organising

Friday 22 June 2018

This fun, energetic course introduces you to Community Organising – 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.

This one-day course is an introduction to community organising as a process which can reach out and bring people together to form stronger relationships and develop community activities together. Community organisers do not do things on behalf of people but motivate and facilitate people to make small and powerful changes locally and for wider social change.

During this course you will explore:

  • what community organising is
  • the importance of listening to build relationships and uncover issues
  • power in communities and why it matters
  • how to motivate people to take action
  • how to take your next steps in community organising & social action

This course is run by Community Organisers Ltd for Community Council for Berkshire and funded by DCMS as part of the Community Organisers Expansion programme. It is also supported by Adult Community Learning West Berkshire Council. It is for anyone in Berkshire wanting to explore how using community organising might help them reach out to people and bring them together to create a stronger community.

The course trainers are experienced and committed Community Organisers. The course is approved as quality training provision by Certa and as approved CPD. All participants receive a Certificate of Participation.
