Wanting to learn more about what community organising is, and you are asking yourself how does community organising differ from other approaches?
Based on the many conversations with fellow practitioners over the last 10 years we have set out what we see community organising is, and what it isn’t, and what makes community organising a distinctly different and unique approach.
Ian got into the swing of it and his smiley sunny disposition soon bought the Devizes people out of their houses and onto the doorsteps to have a chat with us.
We set off door knocking on very wet morning. Ian got into the swing of it and his smiley sunny disposition soon bought the Devizes people out of their houses and onto the doorsteps to have a chat with us. He has always impressed us with his professionalism and his enthusiasm. He has constantly pushed himself out of his comfort zone and is always keen to learn new skills and takes on board all the feedback and we gave him during our regular reflection sessions.
He has worked very closely with Devizes resident Steve and we wanted to share his story. Ian recently got an award at our Community First AGM – volunteer of the year award – for all his hard work!
See below for a short-film about Ian and Steve, who kindly agreed to share their story.
