Campaign Champions


Campaign Champions support our national campaigns on a local level, give survivors of domestic abuse a voice and help to ensure that politicians and other key decision makers are listening to our campaign calls.

“Campaigning has empowered me. Knowing that my voice is heard in the political sphere when I have spoken at Parliamentary events and at an APPG meeting, it’s important for me to know that my experiences will help other survivors and shape future legislation and service provision.”

– Survivor and Women’s Aid campaigner

How does it work?

Our campaigns are full of actions for our Campaign Champions. Depending on how much time you have, you might sign a petition and an open letter, send a tweet, set up a meeting with your MP to raise awareness or secure local media coverage. We will write to you monthly through our campaigner newsletter and we will always send you the key information you need to take urgent action.

Join our campaign network and make a difference!
