How can groups bring about change in a local community? Lesson 2 of 6

Key stage 3 (ages 11-14) • Active Citizenship • Lesson and support materials

How can groups bring about change in a local community?

This lesson is part 2 of a sequence of 6 lessons addressing the key enquiry: Who has the power to bring about change in our community?

Having learnt about power and influence in society in the previous lessons, students investigate how groups such as NGOs and charities can bring about change in local communities. Students gain knowledge of what NGOs and charities are and how they can have power to be changemakers in local communities. Through a range of case studies, they then gain insight into the impact of different NGOs and charities across the UK.

Students will work towards answering the following questions:
  1. What are NGOs and charities?
  2. How can an NGO change a community?
  3. How can charities bring about change?
  4. What impact do community groups have on local communities?
