Event description

Description

You are invited to a one day training in Community Organising conducted by professional CitizensUK community organisers. This is a key staging post in the growing Colchester Citizens alliance which a diverse team of Colchester organisations are seeking to found with 20 local member organisations in October 2018. In order to found we must identify and train leaders across Colchester who are able to listen in our communities, identify issues that matter to our members, develop leaders, take public action, and see change delivered for the good of all in Colchester.

Some of the organisations currently involved are: Essex University, Church of England, Colchester Mosque, Colchester Methodist Circuit, Colchester 6th Form, Colchester Foodbank, CYCO, and the Colchester Baptist Church.

CitizensUK is the home of Community Organising in the UK - Europe's largest civil society alliance made up of churches, schools, mosques, synagogues, trade unions, universities, colleges and charities working together for the common good. Known best for the Living Wage campaign and Refugees Welcome - CitizensUK supports leaders in local communities to work together to build strong civil society, to take grassroots action for good, and to see justice delivered on issues that matter; from road safety campaigns to tackling litter, youth unemployment, islamaphobia, damp and much more.

Do you want to see justice delivered in Colchester? Come and learn how to build powerful communities and reweave the fabric of civil society.
