What support is available for the volunteer?:

Volunteers will receive support from their local in Cheshire from how to write a letter to your MP, to how best to campaign on certain issues. There is also support from the national network available, as well as from the RESULTS UK team. Our groups, spread right across the UK, meet monthly to learn about the issues we care about and take action. Every month we share materials that introduce the campaigns we are working on, why they matter and what exactly you can do to make a difference – whether it’s writing letters or emails to MPs and ministers, or organising a local event in your community. Volunteers always have a point of contact for support and this is a very sociable volunteer opportunity.

What training is available for the volunteer?:

Volunteers can attend monthly RESULTS UK conference calls to hear from experts on the issues we are campaigning about and also attend a national conference. RESULTS UK volunteers also have the opportunity to attend workshops and training sessions run by campaign coalitions and other organisations. Local groups and the national network can support volunteers in learning new skills and experiences.
