ACORN is a community-based union of working-class people. We are a membership organisation fighting for a better life for our members and the communities they come from. We know that the economic and political set up in this country doesn’t work for people like us and so we set up ACORN to fight for and represent our people. 

If you want something done then do it yourself. We’re won’t wait and hope that politicians, charities or companies will make things better for us. ACORN members use direct action to defend and improve our communities and to fight back against the structures and economic policies that see our communities and neighborhoods as a way to line their pockets and get rich at our expense.


We are a fighting organisation. We organise. We build power. We win. Nurses, cleaners, drivers, retail workers: it’s people like us that keep this country running and we’re entitled to our fair share of what it produces. We’re sick of rents and house prices always going up and jobs that never pay enough. We’re tired of rip off transport and our health services and schools being run into the ground.

Nothing’s too good for us. We want a better life and we won’t take no for an answer.

Block by block, street by street, house by house. We organise our communities to build the power we need to fight and win what is rightfully ours. We’re ACORN and we’re taking what’s ours.
