Working with socially and economically disadvantaged adults along with members of marginalised communities, the WEA runs courses to help students appreciate political and social issues. Our active citizenship programmes encourage greater participation in democratic decision-making while our community volunteering courses empower students to take a stronger role in civil society.


Many of our community engagement courses are run in partnership with other organisations as well as through our volunteer-led branches. To find out more about what is happening in your area, contact your local WEA office or become a member to get involved in our campaigns.
