How to listen to your community
Connecting Communities in Berkshire, our counterpart organisation in Berkshire, is organising a training day to help you listen to your community.
The session is being run with Community Organisers Ltd and is on Friday 22 November, from 9:30am to 5:00pm at Beech Hill Memorial Hall (which is between Basingstoke and Reading). It costs £15 for organisations outside of Berkshire.
Community organising is all about bringing people together to take action around their common concerns and overcome social injustice. Effective listening is the foundation of community organising because it builds trust and relationships, uncovers issues and is an essential starting point for bringing people together to share stories, ideas and action.
