Seeds for Change seek new co-op member

John Freeman
Local worker's co-op Seeds for Change is looking for a new member, so if you're an activist and an anarchist and want to facilitate workshops and create training resources for other activists, then you might be who they're looking for.

The Seeds For Change Network is a non-profit training and support co-op helping people organise for action and positive social change. The network started in 2000 with informal co-operation between people who were doing workshops in their spare time.

Providing training, workshops and support to grassroots campaigners is still the main focus of the co-op's work, and this is financed by donations and working part time as trainers for NGOs, co-ops and charities.

Seeds for Change says applicants don't need loads of experience in facilitating meetings and workshops, but you do need to be involved in direct action, be into consensus, be reliable, organised and, of course, nice.

You'll be working 30 hours per week (negotiable) doing training for other activists, researching and writing guides on consensus, facilitation and practical action skills as well doing fundraising and other admin type stuff.

If you're up for it - and let's face it, how often do you see a job vacancy for an anarchist? - then there are details of the job and selection process, plus application forms to download at

Alternatively, you can ring them on 01524 840028 or email with any questions. Or
send an SAE to Seeds for Change Lancaster, 96 Church St, Lancaster, LA1 1TD asking
them to post you an application pack.

The deadline for applications is the 24th October 2011, and they hope to hold interviews in the week beginning 21st November 2011.
