Bespoke training

Transformative training tailored for you

Together we can make organising a powerful practice for your work.

We will work with you to deliver tangible results and long-term transformative change. Some organisations we work with in bespoke ways include Kinship, POMOC, Trussell Trust, Civic Power Fund, Revoke, Grapevine Coventry and Warwickshire, Micro Rainbow and the GLA.

At Act Build Change, we run our evergreen “bread and butter” content for members and national training programmes for the public throughout the year. You can learn more about this on our Membership page and Events page.

However, many collectives want to work with us in more in-depth ways. Some want a long-term partnership for a year or more or training tailored to their specific challenges. You’ll be able to learn about the type of sessions we run on the Our Work page.

This engagement could look like:

  • Training, coaching, or hands-on support from one of our organisers to kick-start your campaign or build a local team.
  • Support as you transition from an informal collective to a formalised organisation and want to bring collective care processes into your work.
  • A bespoke training and coaching package as you reconcile neglecting care and want a critical and kind expert to guide you through this process.
  • Facilitation expertise to support you in creating a powerful, joyful coalition centred on grass-roots organising and winning change.

What is the process?

Please reach out at least two months before work starts to avoid disappointment. 

  1. Fill out the contact form below.
  2. We will contact you within two weeks to book a short call to understand your context.
  3. If we are a good fit, we will begin building a bespoke support package. 


You should expect to pay from £5,000 and upwards for a bespoke partnership. Pricing depends on the support you need, the length of time and the size of your organisation. Money should not be a barrier to reaching out to us. We offer tiered pricing to make our work accessible, especially to groups with turnovers of less than £200,000 and groups working to dismantle the hostile environment.

Drop us a line, and we’ll get to work.


Act Build Change listens, pulls out and understands where all the complexity is, and then the training is shaped around us. The offer is more than just training. The shadowing, the mentoring, the coaching, the help: it is all about strengthening and learning the craft of organising in the context of where we are working. I have felt empowered to make decisions I would otherwise not have, I’ve been exposed to new ways of thinking, and I’ve been able to make a stand and push through boundaries.

— Clare Wightman, CEO, Grapevine Coventry & Warwickshire

It's quality training with a quality experience. Rather than delivering an off-the-shelf package Act Build Change develops the content in an open and collaborative way to really get to the heart of what we are trying to achieve.

We were training young activists but struggling to offer them the right support. Since working with Act Build Change they've grown their team to 10, organised 3 actions, recruited 34 people to volunteer their time, spoken at party conferences, delivered mental health rights training and are regularly participating in ways they weren't before.
