The Social Change Project

Now in its second year, The Social Change Project continues to ask one critical question: what can we learn about how social change is happening that can strengthen civil society’s efforts? Led by The Sheila McKechnie Foundation, the project is open to anyone with an interest in civil society and social change.

The Social Power report

Our first report urges civil society to unleash its ‘Social Power’ by being bolder and braver. It includes findings from conversations with our 400-strong Community of Practice, and tools to help you think about your own work.

Social Power Bite-Size

We’ve produced bite-size summaries of the tools in the Social Power report.

The Change Network

Campaigners and change-makers repeatedly told us they wanted to meet one another across boundaries of sector, issue, geography and size. Our Change Network is one response to that call.


Come along to meet us and others at one of our project events.
