The Sheila McKechnie Foundation is a unique charity.
The Sheila McKechnie Foundation (SMK) is here to support individuals, groups and communities to have the skills and confidence to speak up and take effective action on issues that matter to them. We do this by connecting, informing and supporting campaigners.
All our work is focused on empowering people to have a voice. The bulk of our work is focused on those who are new to campaigning, are marginalised, have few resources and cannot get the support they need elsewhere.
Our work includes:
The annual SMK Campaigner Awards, to support new and emerging campaigners
Events and workshops about effective campaigning
Campaign Central, the online community for campaigners
Promoting the rights of campaigners
