Campaigning

Shipley Conservatives are an active campaigning organisation, and the team are always looking for extra help.

The future of the Conservative Party is very much in the hands of its members and activists. So no matter how little or how much time you can give, it will be well used. If you would like to get involved please either email office@shipleyconservatives.org.uk, or call 01274 585830.

There are a number of different ways to get involved:

As a Deliverer
As such you would be responsible for an area of houses and would undertake to deliver newsletters to those houses when needed (probably four times a year - plus extra deliveries at election time).

In Local Campaign Days
Councillors and local activists are often out campaigning in groups in the community, whether that means leafleting, canvassing or fundraising. These days are usually followed by a pub lunch or a drink, and are a great way to get some exercise! 

As a Canvasser
When you carry out surveys and canvassing in your area, it helps us gain vital information about the issues and concerns of local residents, and helps us shape future campaigns.

As a Fundraiser
Many people find they have hidden talents and get involved helping to organise the many varied social events that take place throughout the year. Everyone, whether attending the event or helping prior to, or on the day it, is helping to raise funds for the Party and enjoying themselves in the process.

Getting involved at Branch Level
Like any volunteer organisation a local Conservative Branch can only be strong and effective if it has a group of active members. If you wish to take part in your local branch you can get involved with campaigning at a number of levels depending upon the amount of time you wish to spend.

As a Branch Committee Member
Every local branch helps with building up membership, raising money, communicating with the electorate and campaigning to win elections. Each Branch is run by a local Committee of enthusiasts.  We are always looking for more ”Chiefs” who enjoy talking through, setting up and carrying out these tasks.

There's lots to do, so do call or email the office if you feel you can help in any way!
