Together we explore change, share knowledge and learn from change-makers

The Sheila McKechnie Foundation believes that civil society is stronger when change-makers come together to explore, learn, celebrate and connect. Our analysis of social change, the tools we offer and the ideas we share spring directly from the collective experience of the change community.

Our community of change-makers is a continuous conversation about change. Join us – come along to a Change Network event, nominate yourself for an award, join our Power Sharing Community of Practice, subscribe to our newsletter or share your story!

Social Power Scotland: a new space for change-makers

Whatever level you’re at and wherever you are on your campaigning journey, we can help
