Event Details

SMK’s masterclass and specialist workshop series invites highly experienced campaigners and others to share their knowledge and expertise about campaigning. These workshops provide detailed technical information and insight about strategies and tactics. The masterclasses and specialist workshops are designed to provide campaigners with:

  • Practical information and advice about effective campaigning tools and tactics.
  • Ideas and advice about how to overcome specific challenges facing their campaign.
  • A peer network of campaigners and an opportunity to learn from each other.

The focus of the masterclass is on using legal processes to secure campaign wins. Our expert speakers for the masterclass are:

  • Matt Downie, Director of Policy and External Affairs at Crisis. Earlier this year Matt and his team secured a significant change to housing policy by intervening in a case before the Supreme Court. In 2014 Matt and his team at Action for Children secured new legislation to protect children from emotional abuse.
  • Steve Broach, Barrister at Monckton Chambers. Steve has worked on successful legal challenges against the Department for Work and Pensions, Islington Council, Devon and Cornwall Police and at the European Court of Human Rights. Steve has worked in senior campaigning roles for the Every Disabled Child Matters campaign and TreeHouse, the national charity for autism education.
