How Can Small Charities Influence Local Elected Officials?

June 16 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am


Small Charity Policy Day Webinar: How to Influence Local Elected Officials

Small charities are the centre of Civil Society. In the UK 97% of charities have an annual turnover of less than £1m, but in terms of impact on local communities here and across the globe their contribution is phenomenal. It’s therefore important that the voices of small charities are heard about in the noise created by larger and better-resourced charities. To mark Policy Day 2021, events will be held to raise the profile of these organisations with policymakers and influencers.

This interactive webinar will be delivered in partnership with Small Charities Coalition (SCC) and will support small charities to influence decision-makers at a local level. The session will help participants know how to build relationships with and influence MPs and councillors. Attendees will receive practical tools and resources from NCVO’s Knowhow platform to support their future influencing work.

Event details

In the session, we aim to explore the key points listed below.

  • Understand why small charities should build relationships with councillors and MPs.
  • Understand how small charities can develop positive and sustainable relationships with councillors and MPs.
  • Discover some practical tools for how to engage with local councillors and MPs.
It will be followed by a 20-minute questions and answers session.
