Participants will improve their skills and knowledge to be more effective campaigners. In particular, they will gain:
- Insight into the successful features of a campaign.
- Knowledge about the key steps in planning a campaign.
- Insights into how to influence political processes and decision-makers, as well as how to use the media to gain support for your campaign (this only applies to full day workshops).
- A chance to meet other campaigners, developing their professional network and receiving peer support.
These workshops are geared towards beginner campaigners. The workshop provides the opportunity to find out how to develop a campaign strategy and identify the key skills needed to run an effective campaign.
hey are suitable for those interested in influencing the policy decisions that affect their community or the people their organisation supports. Participants will already be involved at a basic level of campaigning or are just about to get started – whether you are challenging local authority social care changes or protesting against a local incinerator – if you want practical information about the next steps, then our campaign workshop is for you.
