The Social Change Project

Civil society is at a crossroads. We face mounting challenges, from growing inequality to climate change. This is allied to an upsurge in people wanting to get involved. We want to strengthen civil society’s ability to bring about change. Get it right and we can change the world for the better. Led by The Sheila McKechnie Foundation, the Social Change Project is open to anyone with an interest in civil society and social change.

The Social Change Project: final report

For the last 18 months, The Social Change Project has sought to answer one critical question: what can we learn about how social change is happening today that can strengthen civil society’s future efforts?

What we have learnt is being launched today in a new report which urges civil society to unleash its “Social Power” by being much bolder and braver.

There’s still time to contribute!
