At Age UK North Tyneside we work with you, our supporters, to influence decision-makers on issues that affect older people. This year we have been supporting these great campaigns:
- End Loneliness
- Local Transport
- Crime/Scam prevention
Why campaign with us?
As well as helping to achieve lasting social change, campaigning with us can help you build local relationships, as well as protect vital services that older people rely on. Campaigning can also be great fun, helping to build a sense of purpose.
Depending on the nature of the campaign, it can give you the opportunity to work with key decision-makers, e.g. in local authorities or in the NHS. It may also give you the chance to work with other local groups and organisations, sharing skills, knowledge and resources.
There is strength in numbers – whether it is on a local, regional or national level – and a group of voices is always more powerful than a single voice.
