  • building networks;
  • supporting people to take action.

Employers across England have benefited from the exceptional key competencies offered from organisers as part of their team

‘Employing Community Organisers has allowed us to reassess where we are and what type of organisation we want to be. We’ve taken a step back from ‘doing’ to become enablers as often as possible. Taking this approach has led to our Community Organisers instilling a new confidence in our local communities who have underpinned the work with Big Local and Our Place Partnerships taking the lead in almost all aspects of the work.” The Wharton Trust
