High Trees Community Development Trust (CDT) worked in partnership with Locality (the nationwide network of development trusts, community enterprises, settlements and social action centres), to bring Community Organising to Tulse Hill Three years ago. High Trees CDT Initially hosted four Trainniee Community Organisers that recived training through the then Locality Managed Community Organisers programme before going on to employ three when their training year ended.
The Community Organisers programme is all about inspiring community action at a neighbourhood level. Community Organisers listen to the concerns of people in their area, build relationships and help people take action on local issues that matter to them.
During their time in Tulse Hill, High Trees Community Organisers have listened to well over 1000 residents and have supported a number of resident led projects in the Tulse Hill neighbourhood.
