We are pleased to say that membership of The Company of Community Organisers (COLtd) is now open to ALL people that were involved with the National Community Organising Programme either as Progressed and Non Progressed CO's, Programme Volunteers and those involved with the CO Mobilisation Fund as Grantees or Volunteers. All applicants will need to show a clear and demonstrable commitment to the values and principles of community organising. 

To make this happen we had to make some changes to our governing documents (Articles of Association).

We have prepared a document to answer any frequently asked questions.

Membership is FREE OF CHARGE to those outlined above until 30th April 2018. During this time, we want to work with you to look at what a meaningful membership of COLtd will be. Please share this important update with those in your volunteer network who it applies to.
