Using Digital Tools To Campaign
Age UK London is developing a range of resources to upskill older Londoners on how to use digital campaigning tools to get older Londoners voices heard.
This project will enable older Londoners to learn how to use digital tools and cascade their learning to other older people and their organisations across London.
Age UK London will deliver in-person training workshops, information and support on how to use a range of tools including E- consultations, E-petitions, surveys, video conferencing, social media platforms and a range of useful apps and platforms.
Digital Campaigning Workshops
The first in-person workshop during December 2022 was well received with all participants reporting that it had increased their understanding of digital campaigning.
You can download the presentation from our ‘Introduction to digital campaigning’ workshop here.
You can download our resource on ‘Using social media to campaign’ here.
Our second workshop 'Digital Campaigning - Using social media to get your voice heard' took place in February 2023 and also received good feedback.
One attendee Valerie said: "Thank you for the course on using social media to get our voices heard. It helped me to recall and revise processes as well as to learn new pathways; I also feel motivated to continue exploring and learning with social media. It really will open up avenues of information, discussion, ideas and activities."
You can download the resources from the workshop here.
Our third workshop took place in May 2023 and covered the topic of 'Using local government websites to support campaigning' provided information on contacting local councillors and London Assembly members. You can find the presentation here. We have also produced a list of useful council website links for anyone that would like to contact their local councillors.
Our friends at Independent Age have also produced a comprehensive campaigning toolkit you can access this on their website here.
Our final workshop took place on 23 July 2023. This was a session providing an overview of all three previous workshops. You can read and download the presentation from this session here.
