I’ve been a Community Organiser for 7 years now! It has been a rollercoaster ride and I’ve been employed by and worked with many different organisations. I’ve been a trainee, an organiser, a host, a volunteer supporter and a trainer. I’m now self-employed and have set up a company so have seen community organising from many different angles.
I feel that having all this experience now puts me in a really good place to guide Community Organisers forward – and hopefully do a good job!
I’d like to see Community Organisers work to deepen the relationships it has started to develop with organisations through running associate training and I’d like to see our movement as even more accessible and diverse. We need to be a force for good in our local areas and as a wider organisation.
