As government cuts kick in, individuals and organisations are likely to start campaigns to protect public services. So, what makes an effective campaign?
Listen to the podcast, 31mins, 29s.
Campaigning is integral to charities' ability to get their message across and achieve their vision – whether that's helping people to better healthcare, or a louder voice in society.
But what's the best way of starting a campaign and how can you attract people to your cause? Plus how can you show your campaign is having an effect?
In this edition of the podcast we take a look at charity campaigning and hear from three individuals who all have first-hand experience of the conducting hard-hitting campaigns.
A great opportunity to mix and mingle with MPs and ministers? Or a three week canapé vacation? The party conference season is now a mainstay for the policy and lobbying teams of many UK charities – but how to make the most of your time away, and maximise the networking opportunities. We get the lowdown from Jonathan Ellis of Help the Hospices.
And whether we like it or not the government's Comprehensive Spending Review is looming fast (this was recorded before the CSR announcements were made). For many organisations tough decisions will be need to be made. Social entrepreneur, Craig Dearden Phillips suggests it's simply a game of cards and we have to decide which hand to play.
