Community organising. Local campaigning. Movement building. Charities often fall into the trap of lumping these three approaches into one, and not necessarily knowing which is the right approach to take for the change they’re looking to create.

So how do you know which approach is needed? And what are the skills and capacity/resource required?

At this Campaign Network event, we’ll be diving into each of these approaches, understanding more about the differences between them, the opportunities and challenges, and the skills and resources needed to create change.

We’ll kick the event off with a talk on each of the approaches:

  • Community organising: speaker to be confirmed
  • Local campaigning: Sarah Gilbert, head of campaigns and activism, Mencap
  • Movement building: Esther Foreman, CEO, The Social Change Agency

The talks will be followed by facilitated group discussions based on the World Café methodology. There’ll be three sets of 20-minute discussions. After each 20-minute set we’ll collect feedback from the group as a whole, and then delegates will switch groups for the next set. 

  • Discussion one: Community organising
  • Discussion two: Local campaigning
  • Discussion three: Movement building

Exclusive to heads of campaigns working in UK charities and not-for-profits with a turnover of more than £2 million (CharityComms charity members only)

Booking for this event will open approx. six weeks before the event. To be added to the Campaign Network mailing list please email Sarah Cutress.

About the Campaign Network

The Campaign Network is a joint initiative from CharityComms and the Social Change Agency looking to address a gap for heads of campaigns and campaign leads in UK charities for strategic development, campaign sector development and professional development.

The Network will provide an opportunity for campaign peers to meet to discuss important issues at a strategic level, in order to raise the standard around campaigning. The format of the afternoon is a round-table discussion, led by our excellent facilitators, feeding into the group as a whole.
