About Your Group

In this part of the application, we're looking for 3 things:
  • To learn about your group (where are you based, how many members, how did you come to be a group, what are your goals)

  • What experience you have in campaigning so far (evidence of some campaigning work taking place in the past and some involvement in campaigning or campaigning groups)

  • What inspired you to apply for this training (share why you think this training will have a positive impact on your and your future campaigning)

Do I need to be an experienced campaigner?
Don't worry if you're just starting out learning how to campaign - you don't need lots of experience! You just need to show that you want to learn how to campaign and explain why.

What do you mean by campaigning?
If you need help in understanding what we mean by campaigning, read this great article which outlines our approach.

Please write at least 50 words per answer

In the past, we have offered:

  • Loan of equipment (such as chairs, footrests and laptops, plus computer accessories such as mice and monitors)
  • Data top-ups for phones or pre-paid wi-fi dongles
  • One-to-one and group tech intro and refresher sessions
  • Closed-captioning of online training sessions
  • Resources in large print and / or using appropriate fonts, colour contrast and backgrounds, as well as printed or digital copies of resources in advance of training sessions
  • Cover for childcare costs
  • BSL interpretation

If your group is selected, we will get in touch with all of your groups' members prior to starting the training to ensure we can meet their access needs where possible.
