Volunteer with the People's Assembly

 

 

The People's Assembly is the largest anti-austerity campaign in the UK, responsible for the the biggest demonstrations and events challenging the Tory government's vicious and damaging austerity politics. We've played a key role in bringing the topic of austerity into the mainstream and growing mass opposition to it. Our huge protests over the last few years have made a huge impact and we must continue to keep up the pressure. The People's Assembly is of course made up of ordinary people like you and we always need as many volunteers as we can get!

There's a range of things you can do as a volunteer with the people's assembly, from media work, campaigning, events, stewarding and admin, all of it vital in keeping the movement growing. You can see more about what these roles entail below.  

Volunteering is fun, a way to meet new people from all sorts of backgrounds, a great way to pick up new skills and make a positive impact on society.  Check out our Volunteer Values here.
