Are you looking for better ways to motivate people to get involved in your club?  
Are you bothered about what’s going wrong in your community? 
Do you want to bring people to work together to make a change?   

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.

This free, interactive one day training course, run by COLtd for Supporters Direct, introduces you to the foundations of community organising – genuine, effective listening which sparks dialogue and explores motivations, an analysis of power in community and how to build it, and an exploration of how to organise and motivate people to take effective action together to address common concerns.

“We believe that Community Organising has the potential to significantly enhance and strengthen the relationship between individuals, communities, and the institutions and organisations that serve them.”

Our trainers are experienced community organisers. Our training is approved as quality training provision by Certa and as Professional Development by CPD. Certification for this can be achieved though completion of a “learning log” at the end of the course.

This training is an introduction to community organising. It’s ideal if you’re new to the community organising approach, or if you want a refresher on community organising as a whole. It’s relevant to community activists, volunteer organisers, organisation leaders, frontline workers, politicians and anyone who wants to build a strong community.   

If you want to learn more, there are further one-day courses available focusing on specific aspects of the process, and accredited Award and Certificate qualification courses for those who want to go even deeper into the theory and practice of community organising.

“Through community organising the realisation of individual potential and the creation of self-determining communities go hand in hand.” 

Come along to the training and further your potential at the same time as finding out how to motivate others in your community.   

We are holding two exclusive sessions for community owned sports clubs at FC United of Manchester on Sunday 29th October and at CAN Mezzanine (London) on Sunday 3rd December.

These are ideal for Board Members and volunteers at supporter owned clubs.
