Giving you tools to work out what actually works

Social change is complex and making change happen is rarely easy. Resources are limited and trends in campaigning change fast. SMK provides support to help you think and plan clearly in this dynamic context.

SMK’s core team works alongside our Associates and other partners who are best in their field.​ A wide range of our practical resources and support is available on-line.

Our training and consultancy support is rooted in a unique analysis of how social change happens, and expertise in a wide range of campaign disciplines. We track what’s working in campaigning and horizon scan for new opportunities. We help changemakers explore power dynamics and how to work in deeper solidarity. We offer guidance to help navigate the political and regulatory environment with greater confidence.

Action Learning Sets

This autumn we are running a new series of action learning sets for CEOs, senior leaders, and emerging leaders in campaigning organisations. 

Dates coming soon!


About the programme 

SMK are hosting a programme for Oak Foundation’s UK Housing and Homelessness partners, to build solidarity with people with first-hand experience in campaigns and social change strategies.

What are we learning? 

The social sector needs to change. We’re gathering insights and stories about the challenges and opportunities of working in deeper solidarity for social change, wherever you work.

We will be sharing learning soon. 

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.
