Social power is unleashed when civil society works at its best without constraint. We believe it is just as important as political and economic power.
The Sheila McKechnie Foundation unleashes civil society’s Social Power by being curious about how change happens, by building its confidence and effectiveness, and by championing campaigners and campaigning.
We work with individuals and community groups, large charities and social enterprises, with those at the beginning of their change journey and seasoned professionals. Together we create the tools people need to make change.
We are a small organisation trying to effect a big shift in our sector. We are clear that we are only as strong and effective as our relationships are with all of you – our friends, partners, clients, supporters, funders and other stakeholders. So, we’d really like to hear what you think. And how we can best support and work with you.
