We believe people should be able to shape their world.
We exist to help them do just that.
The Sheila McKechnie Foundation is the UK’s leading provider of training and support to those seeking to bring about positive social change. We act as a powerful voice for this community, and celebrate excellence through our National Campaigner Awards.
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 in a new report which urges civil society to unleash its “Social Power” by being much bolder and braver.
The Awards celebrate the very best campaigns and campaigners each year. Our interest is in finding those who have made change happen – effectively, creatively and courageously. Take a look at our 2018 Awards video and hear all about our amazing winners.
