Community OrganisingOur DiversityReaching the Unreached

Community Organising

Community organising is a process where people who live in proximity to each other come together into an organisation that acts in their shared self-interest.

Our Diversity

Our diversity includes, turning action into networks, creating new leaders, transforming communities. We work with children, young people, young adults, older adults and the even older adults.

Reaching the Unreached

We are characterised by our grass-roots or door knocking approach to community organising. We build community groups from scratch, developing new leaders where none exist and organising the unorganised.

Cornwall and Devon Community Organisers

Community organising is a way  of empowering people in communities with common goals to  work   together to create positive actions that benefit their community.

Cornwall and Devon Community Organisers would like all communities to have an opportunity to engage and empower themselves, to have more control over decisions that affect community life .

Community organising uses a simple model  based around listening . We work at grassroots, listening to individuals in the  community in a variety of settings ,groups emerge and new relations emerge.

The range of activity is as diverse , all is determined by  communities themselves. We work with children, young people, young adults, older adults . We work in homes, on the streets, in halls  where ever the community is . We strive to open doors that are closed and encourage better relationships with services. We have a clear code of conduct . Our agenda is set by residents and often this is to challenge  decisions that affect community life

We are characterised by our grass-roots or door knocking approach to community organising. We support residents tobuild new community groups , developing new leaders where none exist and encourage mobilisation. Because we go door to door we rare able to get a different understanding of communities and gain valuable insight .
