SMK's Annual Campaigners Survey

Are you a campaigner? 'Campaigning' means different things to different people. We see it as any activity designed to change policy, law, attitudes or behaviours. 

Are you part of civil society? We are interested in campaigning by charities, non-profit-making groups (including community enterprises), or volunteers, who act collectively to press for change.  

Every year, the Sheila McKechnie Foundation (SMK) asks campaigners what’s going on in their world.
