Hattie FitzGerald, former campaigner and now a civil servant at the Home Office, will talk about how charity campaigns and communications are viewed from within a Government department, and how to land your messages most effectively.
Simon Morrison is Deputy Chief Executive at Nesta, the innovation foundation working to bring bold ideas to life to change the world for good. He has extensive experience of communications, and whilst at the Home Office led one of the most comprehensive media engagement and public affairs programmes in the UK. We'll be talking to Simon about what he learned and how it shaped the way he now approaches influencing stakeholders in Government.
Grace Brownfield, Senior Public Policy Advocate at StepChange Debt Charity, will talk about the charity’s successful campaign to convince the Government to introduce a breathing space scheme for people in debt - from securing manifesto commitments and legislation to influencing the Treasury around the detail of the scheme – and the lessons they learnt from this.
This event is for charity campaigners to discuss best practice and challenges in campaigning for change. We meet quarterly to hear from expert speakers, share ideas and build relationships across the sector. New members are always welcome.
Registration will open at 13:45 with the event starting promptly at 14:00. The session will finish at 16:30.
