The Sheila McKechnie Foundation (www.smk.org.uk) is a registered charity that supports campaigners to make an impact. We run a series of one-day introductory level campaign workshops throughout the UK to equip people with the skills to bring about change at a local or national level, supported by the Tudor Trust.
We are running workshops in Birmingham and Gloucester in the next few weeks, and would like to invite individuals, charities and community groups who want to learn how to campaign to influence change.
The Nottingham workshop, which will be run in partnership with GAVCA, will take place on Friday 19th April at: Beatrice Webb House, 75-81 Eastgate Street, Gloucester GL1 1PN (http://www.gavca.org.uk/find-us).
The speakers will be: Harmit Kambo, Learning & Development Manager, SMK (Facilitator); Jenny Eastwood, Assistant Editor at The Citizen and Head of News for Gloucestershire Echo. Participants will already be involved at a basic level of campaigning or just about to get started - whether you are challenging local authority social care changes or protesting about climate change - if you want information and advice about the next steps, then this campaign workshop is for you.
These workshops are heavily subsidised but we still require all participants to pay a small fee of £10 to attend. However, if there is a reason you are unable to pay this amount, please email Aura Lehtonen prior to the workshop, briefly explaining your circumstances.
