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 and health inequality. East Durham Trust’s operates on a ‘hub and spoke’ approach through well-established partnerships with our communities. We work directly with community members and partners to facilitate prevention, intervention and crisis support services delivered in our communities, for our communities and by our communities.
We empower people to take ownership of their own needs and work to lift up those most in need in East Durham. We help build and maintain meaningful relationships within our community ensuring those on the margins are helped to be in reach of a spectrum vital services.
