Do you have an idea that could bring about change? Do you want to find out how we use Community Organising to tackle isolation and marginalisation?
We want to find out about YOU, your loves, concerns and visions for your local area/community
A 1-1 is a 40 minute conversation between two people to get to know each other’s story and values. It’s an opportunity to understand whether we share the same passion for injustice, the skills we have and the time we would like to commit.
