How to win change in difficult political times
The political climate is more uncertain than it’s ever been in recent times. With a government blindsided by Brexit and tentative to charity campaigns, what can we do to win change?
At this event we heard from organisations who’ve had campaigning success in these tricky times, found out how they did this. We also explored how we can improve team morale when things aren’t going our way and what we can do together as a sector to improve the situation.

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.
