ACORN is a mass membership organisation and network of low-income people organising for a fairer deal for our communities left behind by companies, councils and parliament. We know that the economic and political set up in this country isn’t working for us, so we set up ACORN to win the power and representation we are entitled to.

The idea is simple – a national community organisation along the lines of a trade union; organising our communities and fighting for a better quality of life. What began with a few local residents trying to tackle slum housing in their neighbourhood has quickly developed into a national organisation with thousands of members and branches across the country.
