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.
The Community Organising Programme has been running since 2013 and is now well established in the Sincil Bank area of Lincoln. The programme, originally funded by the Civil Society, contributed to the successful Place Based Social Action (PBSA) application.
Our Community Organisers are now the PBSA delivery team and they continue to identify what people care strongly about in their community through conversations and relationship building.
If you would like to find out more about the project or get involved, please contact us on email@example.com or 01522 563792.
Conversation Club was established to support people learning English in the Sincil Bank area. The sessions are free to attend, fun and social. To find out more and book online, click below!
Community Organisers are part of the Sincil Bank Community Partnership which has recently received funding from the National Lottery Community Fund and Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport ‘Place Based Social Action’ programme.
In 2017 we obtained the status of Social Action Hub, offering training packages, which give people the skills and confidence to engage with their community and take collective action. The courses are run by experienced trainers at Lincoln City Foundation, supported by Community Organisers Ltd (National Academy for Community Organisers).
Would you like to improve your English skills, or do you know someone who would benefit from some extra support?
‘Conversation Clubs’ have been delivered in the Sincil Bank area of Lincoln for several years and have engaged with individuals from a variety of countries including Bulgaria, Mexico, China, Poland and Italy. The aim of classes is to teach English to non-native speakers in accessible community settings and help them to progress onto further opportunities, such as employment, community volunteering, or simply feeling more able to chat to their neighbour as they pass them on the street.
Free ‘Conversation Clubs’ are currently held at Lincoln City Foundation, LNER Stadium, at the following days and times:
Every Monday - 11am-12:30pm
Every Wednesday - 1pm-2:30pm
Due to Covid-19 restrictions there are limited spaces available.
All students must book by following this link.
Place Based Social Action funding will support three years of activity in the Sincil Bank area and work alongside the community to continue to make the neighbourhood an even better place to live.
Programme duration: March 2019 – March 2022
