About this event

Charities have long been at the forefront of movements that have changed policies and laws. Campaigning is fundamental to the role we play in representing and advocating for the people we serve, and achieving lasting social change.

But what does it mean for charities to campaign? The nature of campaigning is changing. Against a backdrop of political upheaval and post-truth politics, the digitisation of communications and the rise of new modes of movement building—such as deliberative forums, petitioning and protesting—means that many traditional campaigning techniques are no longer relevant.

And how can charities learn what they’re achieving with their campaigns? Understanding the impact of a campaign is usually very different to evaluating a service.

This event will:

  • Explore how charities are responding to changes to the political and regulatory environment
  • Showcase innovative approaches to campaigning and movement building
  • Discuss how charities can understand the impact of these new ways of organising and campaigning

Speakers will be announced closer to the event.

This event is part of our 2020 Leading Impact series of seminars.
