Campaigning guides and tips

A group campaign outside WestminsterCampaigning is how you can help to create a better world for deafblind people.  Our campaign guides and tips will help you to get started.

Personal experience and stories are powerful campaign tools.  This means that deafblind people, their families, friends and supporters are the most powerful campaigners on deafblind issues.  Whatever your skills or interests, there are campaign actions that will suit you .


Our campaign guides and tips explore how campaigns work and describe and explain some of the most frequently used campaign actions.  Whether you want to join in with one of Sense’s campaigns or campaign on something else, they will help you to get started.  Please get in touch with us at campaigns.info@sense.org.uk if you want further information.
