Constituency campaigner programme

What does the role involve?

Our Constituency Campaigner Programme aims to give you the knowledge, tools and support to make sure your voice is heard and has influence at the highest level. This voluntary role will give you vital skills and experience in being an effective campaigner and influencing those who hold the power, right here in your own community.  Constituency campaigners, often working with others, play a vital role in demonstrating constituency support for the rights of people living in poverty around the world. 

You will be a key Oxfam contact for political campaigning in your constituency, working to build a relationship with your local MP and persuading them to act in support of Oxfam's issues.

As a volunteer, you can give as much or as little time to this role as you are able, but 1-2 hours a week is a rough estimate. You will be given a day of induction training and invited to additional training sessions and political events which will help build your skills as an effective political campaigner. You will have the opportunity to learn from Oxfam staff and other programme participants. 

Right now, Oxfam is calling for political action to address the twin challenges standing in the way of ending poverty - climate change and rising global inequality. You will become an important part of Oxfam's campaigns network, bringing about change to tackle worldwide poverty.
