Campaigning is a crucial part of a vibrant and healthy civil society. Our campaigning hub showcases examples of innovative and exciting campaigns to inspire ideas and share learning. It also brings together the most useful campaigning resources to support those wanting to influence policy and campaign for change, and the latest campaigning news and views.
The hub helps our members to design and deliver campaigns that are effective and inclusive, and provides a forum for collaboration and the sharing of best practice.
Previous campaigns Bond has worked on include action/2015 and #ProudofAid. We also have a number of resources on public support and the Narrative Project.

The campaign for aid
A coalition of Bond members is coordinating efforts to make the case for aid in tackling global poverty.
A series of groups have been coordinating the campaign’s work since 2017. These groups are led by a steering group and governed by a board of NGOs.
Collaboration is led by the campaign director, Richard Darlington, who is based at Bond’s office in London.
