ACORN are a national organisation that works on similar basis to a trade union – but instead of a workplace, it organises people in communities to campaign and fight for what they want to sort out in their local area. Most of what ACORN has campaigned for to date has been around housing, including private rental conditions and social housing, but in fact as a member led organisation the campaigns can be about anything from school funding to bin collections.

After running in Bristol for a few years, other branches started up around the country and whilst the focus was nearly always on housing, ACORN were keen to get across their broader basis, being membership led and working on a variety of campaigns – which is where we came in to create this clear and concise animation to tell people who ACORN are and why they should join!
