Do you want to create political change?
Together we can change the system!
Oxfam’s Constituency Campaigners are volunteer campaigners who are passionate about ending poverty and want to make their voice heard locally.
As a Constituency Campaigner, you might find yourself persuading your MP to turn up and vote for new legislation that will ensure more refugees can be reunited with their families or meeting with your MP to talk to them about why action on climate change matters to you. You’ll be part of a wider movement of several hundred constituency campaigners who are taking similar action in constituencies up and down the UK. Together, you’ll be making change happen.
Join the programme today
Constituency Campaigners build relationships with and influence their MPs to help end global poverty and suffering. With support from us, you’ll develop a strong knowledge of your MP’s interests and use this to write tailored letters to them and perhaps occasionally to meet with them to discuss issues in-depth.
You’ll be supported by Oxfam through a range of training and guidance. There’s an induction to get you started, regular campaign briefings to help you write tailored letters, and monthly webinars on topics such as “how to influence your MP”. We’ll be in direct contact as much as possible to provide bespoke support, and when people want to, we’ll link you up with others locally to work together.
The programme has a flexible time commitment – you can volunteer as a Constituency Campaigner on as little as just a few hours per month at a time that suits you.
It’s an exciting way for passionate, tenacious people to play a critical role in ending poverty and suffering.
“This was my first meeting with my brand new MP. Around 20 of us from the constituency met minutes beforehand and huddled together on the pavement asking questions and raising concerns. Despite us being a mixed bunch with different perspectives, we all agreed on the basics. And luckily for me, my MP was supportive of our concerns and more than happy to represent our voices!”
– Ffion, Constituency Campaigner
