Making your voice heard – a toolkit for local campaigning

Nov 14, 2016 | Resources

This toolkit has been produced by the Women’s Budget Group to help women who want to campaign and lobby locally on issues that are important to them. It came out of the Voices of Experience project, funded by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation, which consisted of a series of workshops where women living in poverty came together to express their experiences of poverty and learn more about the policymaking process.

Following these workshops the Women’s Budget Group ran a campaigning skills workshop with women using Platform 51 centres in Wolverhampton. This toolkit is based on this workshop, and uses the campaigning ideas generated by the women involved as examples and case studies.

It can be downloaded in colour and black and white versions.
