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.

Leading Impact seminar series
A theory of change process encourages us to reflect on our aims and plans, to discuss them with others and to make them explicit. We see this process as the foundation of charity strategy, evaluation and communication.
Numbers are important, but alone are not enough—you need personal anecdotes to give them colour and meaning, and qualitative research to understand for example how change has been achieved.
Done well, co-design can unlock positive outcomes for participants, organisations and communities. Designing services and strategies with people rather than to people can build solutions that better address their needs.
This Leading Impact seminar will explore the barriers faced by people trying to influence systems change, showcase real examples of systems change at the frontline and discuss what kind of strategies and leadership are needed to embed systems change approaches.
The road to increased efficiency is often perceived as a journey where data and its collection feel like an obstacle rather than a compass for navigating through the maze of service design decisions. But it does not have to be this way.
