Local Organising Groups

Local Organising Groups comprise of a minimum 21 members (of Community Organisers), who have come together to facilitate the use of community organising principles and practice, to tackle issues that matter most to them. The groups work together, listening to their community, building their collective power and developing community led solutions.

Local Organising Groups underpin the community organising practice already happening within communities across England. The groups ensure that priorities for community and social action directly emerge from our neighbourhoods. This guarantees that Community Organisers continues to remain authentic – acting locally and nationally on issues that people care about.

Social Action Hubs will support Local Organising Groups in their area, by providing training and support in community organising practice, and offering meeting space and other resources where possible. However, Local Organising Groups can also be entirely independent.
