Consultancy and advice

Expert support to unleash your social power

Making social change happen is rarely easy. The world around us changes. Tools and tactics evolve. Attitudes inside and outside our organisations shift. We bring our understanding of social change, our unique tools, and years of experience as campaigners, to offer a range of expert consultancy that will help you do just that.

If your business is change – through transformational service delivery, shifting attitudes, community building or influencing policy – we will help you to interrogate your practice, culture and tactics.

We now offer much of our support online, so we can work with you safely during the COVID-19 emergency.

Wherever you are on your campaigning journey, we can help. 

Now, more than ever, we need to reconnect with our missions and explore how to do things differently.

Our unique analysis of social change and the potential for power in civil society (which we call Social Power) will help you to interrogate your practice, culture and tactics. Using our years of experience as campaigners and change-makers, ongoing research and real-world applications of our findings, we can help you to achieve lasting and transformative change.

I’d highly recommend SMK to others – they understand campaigning organisations, they understand audiences and they understand how to help deliver change.”

Shaun Walsh
Head of Campaigning and Public Affairs, Cancer Research UK

The workshop was excellent and challenged my team to think about how they could be part of an effective change process and what they all could individually contribute.”

Andy Cowan
Business Director, Royal College of Nursing

This has been the most invigorating and inspiring piece of work I have done and I cannot speak highly enough of SMK and every member of staff or associate we have worked with. It’s been a real pleasure.”
