How to campaign

Campaigning is all about taking action to bring about positive change.

If you want to campaign, first you have to believe that your actions can make a difference. They truly can.

"When I started campaigning for a pedestrian crossing on the road near my local shops I didn’t honestly think I’d got a chance. But support for the campaign just grew and grew and now, after almost two years, we have won! 

"We have a pedestrian crossing, complete with tactile paving, beeper and rotating knob! I’m so happy and excited that I can now go out more safely!"

If you have direct experience of the issue you are campaigning on, that personal testimony is one of the most powerful campaigning tools there is.
