2 Trainee Community Organisers
to work and learn in the Wembley area
As part of the national Community Organisers programme.
This government-funded programme will train 500 senior Community Organisers, who will work in local communities around the country to bring people together, listen to ideas, build networks and support people to tackle the local issues which are important to them.
Trainee Community Organisers will learn how to motivate and organise people locally using the Root Solution Listening Matters approach developed by RE:generate to animate, catalyse and focus community action. This involves systematic listening and dialogue that builds trusting, respectful relationships, networks and connectivity between and across diverse communities. As well as supporting local people to take action, senior COs will recruit a team of voluntary COs.
Trainee Community Organisers will be employed by Locality, who are delivering the national programme. In most cases COs are hosted by established local organisations. However, we are testing out a ’direct deployment’ approach and these posts are the first that will be managed in this way. There will be a Local Contact — in this case Meanwhile Space who will be undertaking activity in the area and will provide local orientation and ongoing moral support.
