Local Campaigning

Campaigning ideas

CAAT's campaigns are effective because people like you take co-ordinated action around the country. Take action now or why not think about taking on one of the campaigning roles listed below?

Campaigning with CAAT

You can get more involved in the campaign in any of these ways:

CAAT stall at a community festival

Become a CAAT Key Campaigner

Receive campaigner updates from CAAT and help spread the word about CAAT by receiving multiple copies of our materials to distribute in your area and put up on church or community centre notice boards.

Become a Local Media Activist

Help build CAAT's profile by contacting your local media every month with the help of a monthly briefing from CAAT with ideas, facts and tips. Contact our Press Co-ordinator at media(at)caat·org·uk for more information.

Join the CAAT Speakers Network

Raise awareness about CAAT and get people campaigning by committing to arrange at least three talks a year. Whether you are an experienced public speaker, or have never spoken in public before, we will provide training and information to help you to do so!

If you join the network, we will ask you to:

  • Attend a speakers' training
  • Pro-actively look for at least three opportunities a year to speak for CAAT to groups such as trade union branches, schools, local campaign groups and faith institutions.
  • Complete a feedback form and send it to us after each talk you deliver.

We will support you with:

  • A day's training and skillshare session once a year
  • A speakers pack, with talk outlines and sample powerpoint presentations
  • Advice from the CAAT office

We will also occasionally contact you with requests for speakers that have come to the CAAT office.
