Embedding Community Organising approach in the neighbourhoods across the City of Lincoln, by offering the training and support.

community organising

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.
