Who is this training for?

This training is designed for community leaders from civil society institutions in active membership of Citizens UK.

The training focuses on helping you to achieve social justice - so it helps for trainees to be involved in campaigns with their local Citizens alliance. The training helps you develop your community leadership skills, so you need to want to build your capacity in this area. And we will also touch on how to use community organising techniques to strengthen your own organisation - so you it helps if you are involved, formally or informally, in contributing to the leadership of a civil society organisation.

We particularly recommend this course for those who want to:

  • deepen their understanding of community organising and what it means to be part of a Citizens alliance;
  • develop core community organising leadership skills such as 1-2-1 relational meetings, storytelling, power analysis, campaign strategy, action-planning and negotiation skills;
  • equip themselves to lead change in their community. 

Following the residential training, there is a 50-hour practical placement back in your community, so you will need a context and opportunity to put your learning into action.
