Coaching & Consultancy

We offer a wide range of consultancy support in all aspects of planning, delivering and evaluating campaigns. Our services are delivered by SMK staff and our network of over thirty SMK Associates, all of whom are themselves highly experienced and knowledgeable campaigners.

Our expertise falls into four broad areas. We can provide support in just one area, or create a tailored package drawing on different areas depending on need.

Campaign Strategy, Planning & Evaluation

From developing a Theory of Change to measuring impact, we can provide specialist support in all aspects of effective campaign delivery.

Audiences & Engagement

From power mapping to mobilization, who should you be talking to and how can you best reach and influence them?

Tools & Tactics

How best to achieve the change you seek? We will help you review available tools and tactics from policy and advocacy to social media and movement building.


From navigating the legal and regulatory framework to assess risk, to considering how campaigning can help deliver organizational purpose, we work with trustees and senior managers to develop clarity and confidence around campaigning.

  • The SMK "Train the trainer" course was very enjoyable and useful for our team at Mencap. It covered the fundamentals of campaigning really well. It will be immensely valuable to the local campaigns programme we will be delivering later in the year.
