Camerados is a growing movement of people from Baltimore to Blackpool who look out for each other in person and online. Anyone can be a camerado, it's a behaviour thing. Being a camerado is about how you live on a daily basis and it's based on six principles that help folk be alongside each other and get through tough times.

The Camerados movement was founded by Maff Potts in 2015. Maff spent 20 years as CEO of a number of charities and housing associations and rewrote the UK government's policy for homeless centres. He now believes that real social change comes from social movements.[1]

From a Community action point of view this should be seen as a Network, rather than an organisation. We may not have a developed type to put into page data, but if we're to do Community action seriously we will need to develop something along these lines.

We're going to need to start recognising networks more (as opposed to the more 'traditional' organisation). So much and such an important part of community action is networks and networks of networks or movements. Philralph (talk) 16:19, 28 April 2022 (UTC)
