Igniting Action for Social Change


Community Roots CIC’s aim is to ignite action to bring about social change in communities. We use the principles of Community Organising to facilitate change that builds strong, welcoming and resilient communities based on what really matters to residents. We believe residents given the right conditions and support are best placed to make a difference to where they live.

We have 3 main strands to our work that helps fulfill our aim to bring about social change in communities, which include our grassroots community organising work with residents, delivery of excellent training courses to those with a passion and interest in communities and igniting community enterprise through our Revival Room business initiative.

Community Roots CIC is a non-for-profit organisation that has charitable aims and objectives. A Community Interest Company (CIC) is a recognised legal structure for social businesses like us, as well as being registered with Companies House we are also regulated by the CIC Regulator who ensures we meet our charitable aims.

CIC’s are the fastest growing legal structures in the UK, with recognised advantages for those setting up in the third sector, notably unrestricted legal trading, autonomy and responsiveness. In a world of shrinking grant funding, sustainable social and community businesses are emerging using trading to deliver social benefit.
