Citizens UK are an important and growing community organisation that aims to “reweave the fabric of society” by empowering, training and providing advice to local groups and campaigns on taking their demands to politicians and achieving change.
“Community Organising is based on the principal that when people work together they have the power to change their neighbourhoods, cities, and ultimately the country for the better. We work with people who want to transform the world, from what it is to what they believe it should be. To do this we listen to our members, asking them about their concerns and developing strategies to improve our communities. We ensure that civil society is at the negotiating table alongside the market and state, so that our communities are included in the decisions that affect them.”
Citizens UK provide an alternative way of achieving the needs of society and takes back the debate in favour of what local groups want and need.
