Who are Citizens UK? 

Citizens UK is a powerful alliance of local Community Organising groups in London, Birmingham, Cardiff, Milton Keynes, Nottingham and Leeds. We bring together churches, mosques and synagogues; schools, colleges and universities; unions, think-tanks and housing associations; GP surgeries, charities and migrant groups to work together for the common good.

We develop the capacity of our members to build power locally so they can hold politicians and other decision makers to account. We work on a range of issues, from small local campaigns to large national campaigns.

Community Organising is about building power and participating in democracy: being realistic in what we demand and winning key victories to improve the lives of communities across the country.
