Community Action

The Community Action team works to support residents from Tulse Hill and neighbouring areas to build more active, represented and civically engaged communities. We do this through providing mentoring, practical support and accredited training in Community Organising. We also deliver bespoke Community Organising projects across Lambeth, one of the few organisations that do so. Through this support we help local people take action for themselves on the issues that affect them – in the past three years we’ve trained over 200 people in Community Organising as part of the National Academy of Community Organisers. The team also works closely with all our departments to help build user voice, ensuring beneficiaries always remain at the heart of everything we do.

Find out more about current and past projects as well as details on our training and support below.

The Community Action Team offers quality assured Community Organising training courses to partner organisations, neighbourhood forums, Tenants and Residents’ Associations and Tulse Hill residents. We also tailor and deliver training for organisations seeking to incorporate the principles of community organising into their projects and services. Our goal is to support people who come together to act on their concerns, build their community, and overcome social injustice.

Community Organisers Expansion Programme

High Trees work as a Social Action Hub, including training hundreds of local residents as Community Organisers

“This training has substantially improved my knowledge in community organising. More than that, I feel much more confident in applying the techniques learnt during the training towards my practice as a coordinator in a community led organisation. Truly one of the best interaction-based training I have been in a while!”
