“Encouraging the next generation to participate in the political system and affect positive change in society is vital for a healthy democracy. Patchwork Foundation is creating a space to make politics more accessible, and I credit you for the exemplary impact you are having.”
#GetInvolved sessions are opportunities for young people to learn the basics of politics – from canvassing to campaigning with real hands-on experience and more.
Participants attend sessions led by influential political figures to gain greater knowledge on the internal workings of parties, politics and elections. Our #GetInvolved sessions are run on an ad-hoc basis throughout the year, with a focus on providing engaging and informative experiences. To date, over 4,000 young people have engaged with the programme and have canvassed and campaigned on a grassroots level.
During the 2024 election periods, we will work with the four main parties to create unique opportunities for young people to understand local campaigning; from phone banking, to door knocking to encouraging turnout on election day. From the local elections to the general election, we’ll have opportunities across the country for everyone – so register your interest below and find out how you can #GetInvolved!
These opportunities are open to any individuals regardless of experience levels, and we particularly encourage those who have not canvassed or engaged with politics before. For any queries or concerns, email [email protected]
