Campaigning on Cycling

There are a number of different campaigns for cycling that you could run and this pack is just to give you a few ideas, as well as some best practice from across the country. Many materials that would be useful for any local road safety campaign and not just cycling.

This pack is designed to help you campaign in your local community. Included in the pack are:

  • Petition templates
  • Street letters
  • Focus ideas
  • Email drafts

Campaigning on Crime

With the forthcoming Police and Crime Commissioner elections in England and Wales in May 2016, it is a key time for campaigners to find out more of the local crime and Anti-Social Behaviour and to lead the fight for action on residents’ concerns.

Included in this pack:

  • Template Focus articles
  • Crime Surveys for businesses and residents
  • Court Closures article, letter and petition
  • Bogus Callers cards

Campaigning on Allotments

Whilst we may not all be allotment holders, protecting green space is a very emotive and safeguarding local allotments is a great to campaign for you to run.

Here we have included:

  • Information on how to protect your allotments
  • An example campaign plan
  • Focus drop in
  • Using endorsements
  • Leaflet and petition ideas

Campaigning on the Localism Act

We have produced some materials for you to use to further the campaigns as well as a briefing on the different parts of the Localism Act that you may consider campaigning on.

  • Postcards
  • Petitions
  • Focus drop ins
  • Template Focus
  • Information on Facebook Advertising
  • New Release
  • Examples and campaigning best practice from Camden, Eastleigh and Hornsey.

Campaigning on Housing 

The first of our housing campaign packs looks at opposing the sell-off of council/housing association properties, tackling rogue landlords, and the potential for regeneration of local sites. Campaign materials will include:

  • Focus leaflet drop-in artwork
  • Petitions
  • Direct Mail templates

Campaigning on Postal Votes

As we get into the new political year and prepare to go into full local elections mode, it is as important as ever that our supporters are encouraged to convert to postal votes. Postal votes reduce the likelihood of illness, emergencies, or simply the demands of everyday life preventing Lib Dem supporters from voting on the day.

Pack will include:

  • Recruitment letter
  • Artworked inserts for letters
  • Get Out The Vote materials
