Sneinton Alchemy has recently applied to become a 'Community Organiser host'.

"The Community Organisers programme will create a new home-grown movement of community organising for the 21st century, grown directly from the strengths, concerns and hopes of communities across the country." Community Organisers will "listen to residents in their homes, on the street and where they gather, and they will listen to public service and third sector workers, small businesses and local institutions to help develop their collective power to act together for the common good, as identified locally."

You can find out more about the Community Organiser scheme (and what host organisations do) here.

As always, we're actively seeking collaboration with other groups and would love to hear from you if you are interested either in hosting or (as an individual) in what the Community Organiser role might mean for you.
