Advice and Support by Seeds for Change

Advice and support

We can give advice to groups and organisations campaigning for social and ecological justice. This includes local and national campaigning networks, community groups, co-ops and charities.

Areas include:

  • Developing vision, aims and strategy
  • Structures and systems for a democratic group
  • Consensus decision making, facilitation and meetings
  • Facing group conflict or complex dynamics
  • Campaign planning and choosing effective tactics
  • Outreach and publicity
  • Starting up groups
  • Collective management, accountability systems and policies for co-ops

We are always happy to be contacted for advice. For groups with funds, we offer the first 20 minutes for free, after that we charge £30 per hour. For campaign groups without funds we can offer free advice (see our costs page).

We are approved providers for The Hive, Co-operative UK's subsidised programme of support for co-ops. Apply here for advice and training from the Hive. Please mention Seeds for Change in your application.

We hold Professional Indemnity and Public Liability insurance.
