At UK Neighbours, we focus on the development of organisational relationships that grow our collective power. We know strong relationships are at the heart of strong communities. That’s why we build relationships between very diverse groups of people, bringing them together within local alliances that fight for change. Its why we offer a registered supporter scheme, to help people connect with their neighbours, get to know each other and grow power within a local Neighbours group.
UK NEIGHBOURS invests heavily in the identification, training and connecting of leaders whose capacities and skills may be further developed with careful mentoring and challenge. Mentoring of individual leaders, developing the capacity of member institutions, and providing learning opportunities within the local broad-based organisation (as well as at the regional and national levels) are all a part of what UK NEIGHBOURS embodies as a campaigning community union.
UK NEIGHBOURS is dedicated to developing community power and leadership skills for the people of Britain. We do this by building powerful new community organisations that bring very diverse groups of people together to work for the common good. Central to our organising tradition is a continuous cycle of community campaigning linked to leadership development within broad-based organisations. Our members are organising to take back control for their communities.
