Want to start a campaign but aren’t sure where to begin? Check out our Campaigns Toolkit which takes you through the step-by-step process of running a campaign.
The SU's Campaigns Coordinator, Sam, is based in the Campaigns & Community Office on the top floor of the Students' Union HQ. If you'd like support with your campaign, simply email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Campaigning at Warwick Facebook group allows campaigners to share resources, event details, training opportunities, and calls to action. For the more logistical side of things, and to be kept up to date with the latest campaigns news, deadline, and opportunities, join the Campaigns Logistics Group. Additionally, the sessions below provide an opportunity for campaigners to meet in person, propose joint working projects, share best practice, and organise together.

The SU has three funds which you can apply for money from, depending on the type of project you're working on: the Campaigns Fund, the Project Fund, and the Environmental Sustainability Fund. More information about the funds and how they're facilitated can be found on the Development Exec's page. The application deadlines can be found on the democracy timeline.
University funding options are detailed on MyWarwick. There are also a number of external funding opportunities available. Contact the Campaigns Coordinator if you are having difficulty identifying a source of funding for your campaign.
Our Making Change training series runs throughout the year, offering sessions on many topics essential to campaigners and activists. Topics range from 'Influencing Parliament' to 'Engaging Liberation Communities' and 'Social Media & Viral Campaigning', meaning that hopefully there's something for everyone!
In addition, if you attend 6 or more of the events in the series, you’ll be awarded an SU certificate which certifies your completion of the Making Change series and your new title of SU Change Ambassador.
The SU has two megaphones which can be borrowed for campaigns events. If you would like to borrow one or both for an upcoming event, please email your details and those of your event to email@example.com.
