SouthGen (Southwold and Waveney Valley Regeneration Society Limited) are raising funds through Community Shares to redevelop part of the old Southwold Hospital into facilities for the community, including affordable housing and community space.
As a result, SouthGen is seeking the widest and most inclusive membership. Anyone who buys a share becomes a member and has a vote in the direction of the charity. For instance, how to invest SouthGen’s profits back into the community to benefit local people.
- In Day One of the course, participants will be introduced to the key concepts in community organising.
- On Day Two, participants will learn how to develop listening skills, build relationships, and design a listening campaign, and will develop SouthGen’s field campaign to sell Community Shares in the Old Hospital.
