Community Organiser Bryn Phillips talks to Jack and Billy from the East Marshian Chronicles Podcast.
Bryn talks about bringing organisations together to build civic power - including here in Grimsby. He speaks of the important issue of where the money comes from in terms of a self-determining group of citizens. In particular, Bryn discusses crucial issues around power in community organising - "Power is at the heart of what we do" - and people coming together to determine their interests shared in common.
