To organise a campaign, consider following these steps:
1. Do your research and understand your targets
For example, particular Cabinet Members on the Council may have housing adaptations within their remit/portfolio.
2. Create opportunities to negotiate with those targets.
Either by organising a meeting face to face or online, or by attending a council meeting that is open to the public.
3. Evaluate what you have achieved
Whether that be a creation of a campaign group, engaging local councillors or seeing tangible change in policy.
A pathway to success
Make contact with your elected councillors to apply political pressure. They are a route to more senior councillors e.g. Housing Committee members.
Councillors understand issues of people living with MND when accessing home adaptations and can advocate for them within their council.
Home adaptation process improves. People living with MND can live safely and independently.
