This role is to help and support the Midlands Actions Supporter in their work.

The Midlands Actions Supporter supports Local Groups to develop and deliver the 'end of month' actions as part of the XR UK 2023/24 strategy.

It is very likely these actions will be 'non-spicy' ie very low/no risk of arrest, therefore supporting them would be considered equally low risk.

Commonly these actions are aimed at growing the movement, building alliances and mobilising around local issues, such as air/water pollution, infrastructure expansions, protecting local woodlands, accountability of local politicians/institutions etc.

It may involve attending planning meetings held by local groups and supporting them according to their needs - this may be helping them there and then, or signposting them to resources, or asking the Midlands Actions Supporter for further help if needed.

This role will be flexible to suit the capabilities of the volunteer.

This role is being advertised by the following working group:
