RESULTS is a movement of passionate, committed, everyday people. We have a vision to end global poverty through political and public will. Together we use our voices to influence political decisions that will bring an end to poverty. Our campaigners learn to effectively advise policy makers, guiding them towards decisions that improve access to education, health, and economic opportunities. 

RESULTS UK is a movement of passionate, committed, every day people. Our grassroots network is made up of 13 campaign groups and many individuals. Our campaigners speak and act powerfully within their communities, building relationships with their MPs and making requests to the UK Government and other decision makers. Volunteers are connected by an interest and passion to end global poverty; and attend training events, action days and social events. They learn about a variety of issues over time and develop their advocacy skills to push for an end to global poverty. Each month there is a well-researched campaign action you can take, which is sent out in our action materials. Our action materials include the context of the campaign, additional information, tips and guidance. The 'Call to action' each month is often to write to, and engage with MPs, and Government Ministers. Who you write to depends on who the RESULTS UK policy and parliamentary teams think you can influence the most! RESULTS campaigners in London meet as a group to plan and take campaign actions and organise events. They regularly join our national monthly conference calls, learning more about international development and sharing their successes from around the UK.

Time commitment

Typically campaigners spend 2-4 hours per month volunteering for RESULTS but there is no upper or lower limit! Being involved often takes the form of attending the monthly nationwide Grassroots Conference Call (via Zoom), a local meeting, and taking action either individually or as a group. Some actions take longer than others. For example, trying to arrange a meeting with your MP can take time, but can be very powerful and rewarding!
What measures have you put in place to ensure volunteers’ safety during COVID-19?
Volunteers can get involved completely remotely if they wish. Campaigning actions can be done online and our monthly conference calls are held via Zoom. If campaign groups meet up in person, they must do so in line with Government guidelines on COVID-19 restrictions. RESULTS UK regularly reviews our guidance to Group Leaders about meeting in person. However, in person campaign group meetings are optional and volunteers could instead join the meeting virtually.

This organisation is one of our community partner organisations.
