Launch of our free guide to community organising

Source By: Hackney More in Common

What is community organising?

It seems like everyone is talking about community organising these days. Hackney Unites have been practicing it for eight years, and with the help of Trust for London, we thought we would share our understanding and help others to begin to organise their community.

We are still preparing for our contribution to the More in Common weekend (celebrating the life of Jo Cox MP murdered for her commitment to social justice) which we are hosting on 17 June.

Our next meeting will be at Hackney CVS (The Adiaha Antigha Centre, 24-30 Dalston Lane, E8 3AZ) from 5:30pm till 7pm. It is very important that groups wishing to play a role in the event try to send a delete if at all possible. This is where decisions will be made.

Just to reiterate

We are organising a More in Common event which include elements of arts festival, community networking, debates and discussions, workshops, yoga, and food! We are also hoping to host a Hackney short film festival (so please send in your suggestions).

Already over 30 community groups want to be part of this. There are too many to list, but they include: Hackney CVS, Amnesty international, Caribbean Elderly Organisation, Hackney Youth Parliament, Hackney Pirates, Akwaaba, Reel Rebels Radio, Xenia, Musallaa An Noor Mosque, Halkevi, and many more.

Sport England - Helping the Active Stay Active When Life Changes

Sport England has announced a new pot of funding which will be used to support people to stay active. Helping the Active Stay Active When Life Changes will make grants to organisations for projects that enable people who are currently active to stay active during and after a big life change. Organisations don't have to be sport-related to apply for funding - any organisation that comes into contact with people at a transitional stage in their lives can apply. The fund will consider grants for up to 4 years, and Sport England envisages grants to be in the range of £50,000 - £500,000.

Deadline: 22nd May
