Become a Social Action Hub

Social Action Hubs are locally rooted organisations which are committed to training and supporting people to develop their understanding and practice of community organising.

These grassroots organisations are the closest to the people and key to restoring community power. That is why we are encouraging more grassroots organisations to become Social Action Hubs, as these hubs create spaces that inspire and facilitate action at the grassroots.

Working collectively, as part of our Social Action Hub Network, we can share best practice and more importantly amplify the stories of ordinary people making it possible for policy makers and those in power to hear those stories and bring about much-needed change.

The concept of a Social Action Hub for us is about building power within local communities in three ways: through personal development – empowering individuals; through campaigning –working on issues; and through organising to gain recognition and become more effective at a strategic level.

Three Pillars of Community Organising

Good community organising practice is built upon high quality training, experienced mentoring and support and, of course, putting the learning in to practice.
That's why our core work at Community Organisers is built around 'Training', 'Support' and 'Action'.
