About Us

Powering Campaign People

Legendary campaigner, Sheila McKechnie, believed in the importance of people being able to shape their world. This is the founding principle of SMK today.

We are in the business of helping people and organisations effect positive and lasting social change – whether in their local community or right across the globe.

We teach and support all these campaigners, from those who are just starting out to experienced campaigners in large organisations.

We bring the campaign community together to share new ideas, knowledge and resources, helping people and organisations campaign more effectively and efficiently, build confidence, nurture talent and accelerate impact.

And we work to champion and celebrate campaigning, demonstrating its’ value and acknowledging success.

Because, ultimately, we believe people being able to shape their world makes society fairer, safer and more vibrant. And we know Sheila would have agreed.

Our Vision

Individuals, groups and communities have the skills and confidence to speak up and take effective action on issues that matter to them.

Our Core Aims

  • That campaigning is recognised and supported as an essential part of an engaged, inclusive and responsible society.
  • That people – whether individuals, communities or organisations – have the knowledge, tools and support they need to campaign successfully
  • That the campaign community comes together to strive for excellence and to celebrate success
