Women’s Aid Campaign Champions support our national campaigns on a local level, give survivors of domestic violence a voice and help to ensure that politicians and other key decision makers are listening.
How does it work?
Every campaign we run has actions for our Campaign Champions. Depending on how much time you have to give you might sign a petition, send a tweet, set up a meeting with your MP to raise awareness or secure local media coverage. We send you all the information you might need – just click below to go to our signup form.
“Campaigning has empowered me. Knowing that my voice is heard in the political sphere when I have spoken at Parliamentary events and at an APPG meeting, it’s important for me to know that my experiences will help other survivors and shape future legislation and service provision.”

Campaign action: Come Together to End Domestic Abuse campaigner toolkit
Domestic abuse affects people throughout society and at every stage of life – what we need is for people to come together, to step up, and do what they can do in their communities and workplaces to end domestic abuse. And we need to reach all women and children, and ensure we are as accessible as possible in our work. We are asking everyone if they will Come Together to End Domestic Abuse; women, men and young people together.
In your toolkit you’ll get branded posters to share in your community, ideas on activities you can do to make a change, and much more!
