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.

Tools and Resources
Start with our Campaign Champion Toolkit
Never underestimate campaigners and activists in driving change and making history. We can all make a lasting impact; we just need to know where to start.
We’re here to help. Our Campaigner Toolkit provides advice on getting started with your campaign, who to target, talking to the media, actions you can take, staying safe, and has lots of exclusive top tips too.
Starting a campaign can be overwhelming. Begin with clear actions, learn from what works, celebrate all your achievements, and always remember looking after yourself throughout the process is vital!
Campaigner action: Will you help us share our 2024 General Election manifesto far and wide?
A general election is in the pipeline, and we don’t have time to waste. We have launched our ‘General Election 2024: a whole-system response’ manifesto and we urgently need your help to spread awareness on our calls for politicians to commit to the national prioritisation of domestic abuse.
