Constituency campaigners programme

What is it?

Oxfam's Constituency Campaigners programme offers training and support to help you influence politicians on international issues.

Training includes:

  • Persuasive writing skills
  • Meeting your MP
  • Innovative ways to influence
  • Influencing your MEP

What you'll do

  • Meet with, and write to, your MP and other local decision-makers.
  • Engage local politicians via twitter and other social media.
  • Provide feedback on local activity and your MP's policy position to your Oxfam staff contact and your local Oxfam group.
  • Organise/support public events involving political representatives.
  • Identify and take campaigning actions (often at short notice) as opportunities arise.
  • Attend training and events.
