An Introduction to Community Organising
Are you looking for better ways to motivate people to get involved in your community or organisation? Are you bothered about what’s going wrong in society? Do you want to bring people to work together to make a change?
Our training will help you start to understand how to listen to people, understand your community and motivate people to take action for a better community.
Community Organising is the work of bringing people together to take action around their common concerns and overcome social injustice. Community Organisers reach out and listen, connect and motivate people to build their collective power.
“We believe that Community Organising has the potential to significantly enhance and strengthen the relationship between individuals, communities, and the institutions and organisations that serve them.”
Our one day training course introduces you to the core foundations of community organising – genuine, effective listening which sparks dialogue and explores motivations, an analysis of power in community and how to build it, and an exploration of how to organise and motivate people to take effective action together to address common concerns.
This training is an introduction to community organising. It’s ideal if you’re new to the community organising approach, or if you just want a refresher on community organising as a whole.
Our training is approved as quality training provision by Certa and as Professional Development by CPD. Certification for this can be achieved though completion of a “learning log” at the end of the course.
If you’re keen to start organising in your community and learn more, there are more one-day courses available focusing on specific aspects of the process, and accredited Award and Certificate qualification courses for those who want to go even deeper into the theory and practice of community organising.
“Through community organising the realisation of individual potential and the creation of self-determining communities go hand in hand.”
Come along to the training and further your potential at the same time as finding out how to motivate others in your community.
