Join us to be inspired by possibilities, share your struggles, and learn together
Our Society is:
Our Society aims to connect people who are genuinely concerned to move power into communities and who help others to improve their shared lives and environment. We are here to share ways of achieving social, economic and environmental benefit where you live and among your communities of interest.
We see value in many of the ideas advocated under the Big Society label – local decision-making, mutual support within communities, strengthening civic institutions and wider civic participation. We believe they belong within a wider context of social action that has a long history and a future beyond the programmes and initiatives of different governments.
It’s important that at a time when much of the infrastructure that supports community action is under threat, we find ways to continue supporting each other, sharing experiences and concerns, and creating honest dialogue rather than selling brands.
Our Society aims to provide a space where people can :
Our Society welcomes those of all political views who share these objectives. We are aiming to develop this network in partnership with our members and there will be a co-design process over the next few months where you can help to steer and shape this network. Watch this space for more information soon.
