Citizens UK Charity number: 1107264

Citizens UK is a people power alliance of diverse local communities working together for the common good. Our mission is to develop local leaders, strengthen local organisations which are the lifeblood of their communities and make change.

Our member communities are deeply rooted in their local areas. These schools, universities, churches, mosques, synagogues, parent groups, health trusts, charities, and unions, are important civic institutions that connect every day to the lives of hundreds of thousands of people.

Through the method of Community Organising we enable communities and local leaders to develop their voices and come together with the power and strategy to make real change.
