It’s Bloody Complicated: Community Power


On this episode, Frances Foley, deputy director of Compass hosted two great movers and shakers of the community power movement:

  • Andy Jackson, community leader at We’re Right Here, the campaign for community power
  • Mohammed Afridi, Director of Organising at the Civic Power Fund

We got into the complicated nitty and gritty of what terms like ‘community power’ actually mean, the links to physical infrastructure, and democratic innovation at the local level, from co-operatives to friendly societies, settlements to trade unions.

Recorded live with our members on 23rd May.
