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.
CCB has been working with Community Organisers Ltd for the last 3 years, bringing their training to Berkshire and helping active citizens improve their skills in community engagement, empowering them to bring about positive changes within their communities.
Membership of Community Organisers Ltd is free and brings with it access to an incredible network of like-minded people from across England. See https://www.corganisers.org.uk/membership/join-the-movement/become-a-member/ for details on how to join.
Joining Community Organisers will also connect you with local people working to improve life within Berkshire. Community Organisers Berkshire, a CCB initiative, provides support to anyone needing information and advice with progressing their own community-led project.
Members of Community Organisers can now take advantage of a new benefit: Peer Learning Circles. People often find that the best way to learn new skills is through doing something, and then reflecting on this with others. The Peer Learning Circles will help you apply the skills that you are developing as community organisers, to the work you are involved with on the ground.
Members can sign up to join a Peer Learning Circle and be matched with people either from the local area or members from farther afield but with similar interests or working on similar projects. If you’d like to hear more about Peer Learning Circles or find out about Community Organisers Berkshire, please contact Tim Parry at CCB. firstname.lastname@example.org
