What we do

Create better, bolder change

We envisage a confident and powerful civil society in which people work together to drive change.

We collaborate with our community to explore change, deepening understanding, generating insights and creating tools to help others. We share knowledge through our training and consultancy, which can be tailored to individual or organisational needs.

We are a champion for civil society campaigning and protecting civic space, and we celebrate the best campaigns and campaigners. Together, we are unleashing civil society’s social power.

Changemakers’ Toolkit 

With the support of Wikimedia UK, SMK has launched an open access toolkit to empower people to campaign effectively. 

We know that campaigners, activists, and changemakers of all types are stepping up to address injustices, improve conditions in their communities, and draw attention to neglected issues. That’s why we’ve launched the Changemakers’ Toolkit, a free online training resource.

Read our joint blog here to find out more about this unique collaboration.
