thames neighbours 

"THAMES NEIGHBOURS builds the capacity of communities of people living in the Thames Gateway area, so that we can take back power on our own terms. To do this, we organise neighbourhoods, identify local leaders, build strategic alliances between community groups, develop capacity through leadership training programs, and speak out on behalf of local residents at the local level, so that we have an active role in shaping the policies that affect the quality of life in the places we live in and love."

MIDLANDS NEIGHBOURS

"MIDLANDS NEIGHBOURS builds the capacity of communities of people living in the East and West Midlands, so that we can bring power closer to home. To achieve all this, we organise local people in to streets associations like Leek Neighbours and Hanley Neighbours, develop leadership, build alliances between different groups, and speak out on behalf of local residents at the national level, so that we play a leading part in designing solutions to problems that affect our lives in our communities. "

WELSH NEIGHBOURS

"WELSH NEIGHBOURS builds the capacity of communities of people living in south west Wales and the Valleys, so that together we can build better neighbourhoods. To do this, we organise local people, identify and mentor leaders, build alliances between community organisations, increase resilience through citizenship training programs, and speak out on behalf of local people at both the devolved and national political level, so that we have an active role in shaping the policies that affect life here in south Wales."

NORTHERN NEIGHBOURS

"NORTHERN NEIGHBOURS builds the capacity of communities of people living in the north east and north west of England, by uniting local community organisations and facilitating leadership identification and training on the skills we’ve found to be most helpful to organising grassroots power. All this to cultivate the collective capacity of local organisations, as we continue together to build a movement capable of bringing power home. To do this, we organise neighbourhoods, develop leaders, build alliances between community groups, and speak out on behalf of residents at the national level, so they have an active role in shaping policies that affect the quality of life in the North."
