and part of the national network for community organising


In a packed Christ the Cornerstone Church on Monday 12th May, attended by 260 people, 12 community organisations won support for four campaigns from the leaders of MK's three main political parties. The campaigns were: Living Wage, Better Public Transport, Safe Youth Space and Weaving Trust.

In his opening address, Mayor Brian White said: "The importance of Citizens:mk is that it brings people together around social issues that really matter and which they can do something about. It encourages openness, respect and involvement. As MK grows the role of citizens in moving forward as a community gets more important and in Citizens:mk there is a powerful method for activating the energy of ordinary people."

During the evening, five different employers stood up to explain why they had recently agreed to adopt the Living Wage for all their workers. They were: the Open University, Works For Us, St. Paul's Catholic School, MK Relate and MK Citizens Advice Bureau.
