Become a Community Organiser

Community Organisers get training to help local people run projects in their area.

What is it?

Community Organisers is a national training and development programme, providing an opportunity for people to improve their local community.

The role of a Community Organiser is to:

  • listen to local people
  • support people to develop their power to act together for the common good
  • help people take action on the local issues that are important to them

The work of the Community Organisers is community-led. This means that priorities are set by local people, not the organiser. The training Community Organisers get gives them the skills they need to do this.

How can I get involved?
