Activism Representatives

Activism Representatives are volunteers who coordinate and support local group activities in their area.

There are Activism Representatives for Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales and 10 geographic regions in England.

Activism Representatives stay informed of all the work that groups in their area are doing. They are a point of contact with, and provide support to, the local groups in their area. They also help with setting new groups up and provide a crucial link between our staff and local groups communicating any issues, concerns and achievements.

Activism Representatives help groups to work together and increase their impact in an area. They also arrange joint training sessions for groups and help them to make best use of our training resources.

 

Activism Conferences

Every year, the Representatives organise a conference for their nation / region. These conferences are an opportunity to enable members to learn more about campaign priorities, get involved in policy debates, take part in actions, discuss regional / national issues and meet each other.

Local group members work tirelessly to support our campaigns through media work, lobbying, awareness raising and letter writing. Activism Representatives help to coordinate and support groups in these activities. When we share concerns with Non Governmental Organisations, such as Trade Unions, Activism Representatives also manage this relationship in their area.

Some Activism Representatives hold other roles in Amnesty UK such as Country Coordinators or Trainers. They hold a Forum four times a year to discuss issues relevant to their work.
