Download the Stories of Action booklet to read the actions inspired by the Community Organisers Expansion Programme
The Community Organisers Expansion Programme was a training programme to introduce 3,500 people to community organising over a three year period. The Programme introduced almost 4,000 people to community organising through a network of 25 Social Action Hubs and a range of local and national partners.
Although the Programme was a training and development programme rather than a social action programme, the ultimate aim was for residents to take action together in and across England’s most deprived neighbourhoods for social change – focused on the issues that matter most to them.
Through reporting by Social Action Hubs we know that as a result of the Programme, 30,000 people were engaged in one-to-one conversations and 3,000 people were activated or mobilised in social action.
This stories booklet highlights just some of the stories of action inspired by the Programme.
