We have partnered with the Sheila McKechnie Foundation a number of times recently, and wanted to share more about their campaigning programme that we have been involved in. If you are a campaigner, or interested in campaigning check out The Campaign CarouselTM.
The Campaign CarouselTM is a flexible, accessible and cost-effective way to build up a set of skills to allow those on it to become the ‘complete campaigner’.
First, it offers a grounding in the essentials of understanding social change, planning a campaign, communications and evaluation. These are the foundations that all campaigners need to succeed.
From there, each campaigner’s journey is unique. They add to these foundations five building blocks chosen from a range of options that cover areas as diverse as influencing in Parliament, working with lived experience and using the legal system to achieve change.
The best part is it’s completely flexible, with workshops running throughout the year, so busy campaigners can arrange a timetable to suit them.
The Campaign CarouselTM is a great way for new campaigners to begin to change the world and for more experienced campaigners to refresh their skills.
