Our Community Organiser Team go out in Bevendean and Moulsecoomb and via face to face conversations through 'door knocking' listen to what local residents have to say about their area; what residents like and any areas for improvement.
Community Organisers are trained to support students and non-students to take action on issues that affect them in the community by listening and identifying common themes and linking people up with each other. Previous community organising across Brighton has included student-led meditation in student halls, bringing residents together who wanted to establish a community hub and street parties designed to help residents get to know their neighbours better.
Community Organising is an amazing way to bring residents together make a positive contribution to the local community. The Community Organising approach puts the community at the heart and supports residents to work together to create their own solutions.
Sussex SU are recruiting both student and non-student residents to become Community Organisers.
We're looking for people who are friendly, good at listening, positive, proactive, resourceful and passionate about people and supporting them to tackle local issues. It is a great opportunity to come together as a part of one community.
2 day training is provided by Let's Co-organise and CoLtd trainers who have extensive community organising experience with both Brighton and Sussex students. You will be trained to go out into the local community and start conversations with people face to face and support them to make a difference in their local area.
It all starts with Door Knocking!!
