Want to start a campaign but aren’t sure where to begin? Check out our Campaigns Toolkit which takes you through a step-by-step process on how to run a campaign.
The SU's Campaigns Coordinator is based in the Resources Room on the top floor of SUHQ. If you'd like support with your campaign, they run a drop-in session every Monday at 2pm. To make alternative arrangements, 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.
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.
