Supporting a Woman to Run for Election

Maybe you can never see yourself as a candidate, but would love to be involved in getting a woman from your area elected to your County Council.

Having a team that knows the ropes will make a huge different to a woman running for election, regardless of how much or how little time you have to give.

There are plenty of different roles within a campaign team. Aside from the Campaign Manager who will be in charge of the campaign, a candidate will welcome someone to manage the campaign’s finances, canvassers and people to deliver flyers, poster teams, admin help, and drivers for canvassing in rural areas. Even someone to do school runs, cook and keep on top of the laundry will be a valued team member.
