In August 2012, Church Action on Poverty asked me to produce a short book that would inspire people to start community organising.

The document, funded by the Young Foundation’s Building Local Activism programme, featured case studies, photographs and personal testimonies about the impact of community organising from across the UK.

Focusing on the work of four organisations – Birmingham Citizens, Together Creating Communities Wrexham, Thrive Teesside and Thrive Manchester – the resource illustrated how community organising has been used to tackle a huge range of issues, including school exclusions, mental health, and debt.
