TRUST THE PEOPLE
Trust the People is a movement of community builders committed to building a real democracy from the grassroots up. We believe that by stepping into our agency and working with others in our neighbourhoods, we can shape our society into one that serves the needs of all.
We offer a free 8-week online education course that takes you through every aspect of community building - from connecting with people one-to-one to running People's Assemblies, which harness the wisdom and power of the community. By sharing these skills, we hope to help people support their communities in the face of local and global crises.
Our next course is scheduled for Monday 13th February to Monday 3rd April 2023. Please sign up below.
We are the answer we have been waiting for.

WHAT WE DO
At the core of everything we do is a commitment to collaboration and democracy. We want to share the skills needed to turn our communities into democratic hubs, in which everyone’s voice is heard.
We run several offerings to this end:
Laid out over 8 weeks, our free online course gives a firm foundation in community organising and teaches the tools needed to strengthen our neighbourhoods using democracy and empathy.
