The work of the Community Organisers focuses on building relationships and mobilising people in communities. It encourages communities to take action that makes a positive difference. Community Organisers listen to the concerns of their community and help them to take action on the issues that matter and create positive change.
Our Community Organiser based in Trimdon Station was funded through the Coalfields Regeneration Trust and Locality. As well as listening to the local community in Trimdon Station our Community Organiser also hosted a Community Job Club in the local Centre.

WHAT WE DO
We help the communities of the former district of Easington which is made up 20 distinct areas, most of which are former Pit villages that continue to be hugely affected by deprivation following the closure of the Pits. We run a wide range of projects to help the community fight disadvantage including food parcels, telephone befriending for the socially isolated, helping people in the downward spiral of debt, supporting people to get the benefits they deserve, helping people get into employment, providing holiday activities with food, getting the disengaged engaged with the arts, support for single parents, arts on prescription, community loans and SO MUCH MORE!
