Event description
This workshop looks at how your charity or non-profit can engage politicians effectively and get them to help and support your organisation.

About this event

Does your charity or non-profit need some support from those in public office? Do you face challenges or obstacles that you can't overcome without support from key policy makers? Perhaps you are passionate about your cause and simply want legislators to hear your story?

Whatever your reasons, engaging politicians and key policy makers can be a real challenge in itself. Whether you want to lobby government over policy or convince your local MP to support your organisation, this workshop will teach you how even the smallest organisation can successfully engage MPs, councils, even ministers and more!

In this 90 minute event, your host (details below) will teach you how to effectively engage key policy makers, how the system works and how to make it work in your favour.

There will then be a focus on how to make the most of your opportunities at meetings and how to get the concrete outcomes you're chasing from just a 10 minute chat

But not only that, Third Sector Network will look at how you can convert that initial contact into a lasting and productive relationship. Whether you're looking to get the local council onside or a photo op with the PM, these goals are all achievable if you approach them the right way and use the tips and tricks this event will look at.

The event itself will consist of a mixture of presentation from the host, interactive discussions focussing on your specific circumstances and then an open ended Q&A session where as long as the questions keep coming, the host will keep giving you the answers you need.

So if you've been trying in vain to get the MP to visit your head office, or you need to engage a council or minister with a message or cause, this event will focus on how any organisation CAN make that happen.

This event is a spin-off from another event hosted by Third Sector Network entitled Boost Your Charity's Profile (click here to find out more). That event looks at a variety of ways charities and non-profits can engage key partners. This event takes on section of that event (engaging politicians and key policy makers) and expands upon it considerably.

More about our host and Third Sector Network.

Third Sector Network host a variety of events specifically for the charity, non-profit and social enterprise sectors. Our events are designed to give organisations plain, understandable and relatable information that can be used straight away to practical use and without the need for big budgets or staff resources.

We always say:

"Our number one aim at every event is to make sure you leave in a stronger, more confident place on the subject than before you came. We can't always wave a magic wand and make everything you want happen at once. But we aim to give you the know how and practical tips you need to make things happen yourself in the long run."

So whether you're a larger nationwide organisation or a solo operation with a budget of zero, these events will definitely have something for you.
