Community Organising

Community Organisers “Community Organising” is where we come to you, at the group you are involved in, at the school gates, in the park and particularly by knocking on your door. We want to know what you like about where you live and what concerns you about your area. We also want to know if you have the time and passion to  get together with  like minded people to change and improve your area. Community Organisers have worked in Quarndon, Wyndley, Muggington & Weston Underwood, Lea & Holloway, part of Alfreton, Langley Mill and Aldercar, Ironville, Heanor and Riddings. Senior Community Organiser Kirsty has worked in Heage, Belper Parks, Marlpool and the Gladstone Avenue area of Heanor and is currently focusing on Loscoe , particularly Charles Hill and Somercotes. If you have been active in your community as a Mutual Aid group or Covid response volunteers , please contact us to find out how you and neighbours could capitalise on your work for the future.
