Mission

The Citizen School grew out of the work developed by some schools in membership of Citizens UK – the national home of community organising in the UK.

We work with a range of schools and multi academy trusts – as well as various organisations interested in supporting young people and their families. We believe organisations working with young people and families have a vital role to play in the transformation of communities and of wider society. We equip leaders through the practices of community organising and enable them to deeply reflect on their practice as a way to better embed effective strategies. We undertake research to support our aims and share the lessons through publications, training and consultancy.


Some of the organisations we have supported – and continue to support – include the following:
