Social action hub
As a Social Action Hub we aim to embed Community Organising in the neighbourhoods across the City of Lincoln, by offering the training and support. Funded by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS), we offer free training package, which gives people skills and confidence to engage with their community and take collective action. The courses are run by Lincoln City Foundation Social Action Hub, supported by Community Organisers Ltd and funded by DCMS as part of the Community Organisers Expansion programme.
Introduction to Community Organising
Our Introduction to Community Organising training course is suitable for anyone in Lincoln wanting to explore how using community organising might help them reach out to people and bring them together to create a stronger community. This one-day course is an introduction to community organising as a process which can reach out and bring people together to form stronger relationships and develop community activities together. Community organisers do not do things on behalf of people but motivate and facilitate people to make small and powerful changes locally and for wider social change.
During this course you will explore:
• what community organising is
• the importance of listening to build relationships and uncover issues
• power in communities and why it matters
• how to motivate people to take action
• how to take your next steps in community organising & social action
Listening Skills for Community Organising One Day Workshop
The aim of the course is to support people to develop the skills and confidence to engage in listening in the context of community organising, either with family and friends or in the community. This one day training is filled with practical listening exercises, where participants can learn and reflect on the importance of listening in the context of community organising and develop the skills and self-awareness required for listening.
Building power through Community Organising Workshop
During this workshop, we explore the meaning of power in the Community Organising context. Whilst taking part practical exercises, the participants gain deeper understanding of power and explore their personal power and ability to act.
The course trainers are experienced and committed Community Organisers. The course is approved as quality training provision by Certa and as approved CPD. All participants receive a Certificate of Participation.
We aim to make this course fully accessible. Please speak to us about any needs you have.
