Right now hundreds of 38 Degrees members are running, and winning, campaigns all over the country on the issues close to their hearts. From saving vital local services from cuts, through to changing government policy on the big issues of the day.
If there’s an issue that you want to campaign on, an NHS service you want to save, or a privatisation bid that you want to fend off, why not kick start a campaign locally? We’ve built simple, but powerful tools that you can use and we’ll be with you every step of the way.
Just visit the Campaigns by You part of the 38 Degrees website to get started, it takes just a few minutes to get your campaign off the ground and we’ll walk you through each step.
When Andrew from Exeter heard that his local NHS walk-in centre was going to be closed, he called up his friends and decided to do something about it. After launching a petition on the 38 Degrees website and organising events outside of the centre, he managed to get the local newspaper to support his campaign and eventually saved the centre from the axe!
Krys from Sutton heard that key departments were going to be cut at her local hospital, so she lept into action. She launched a petition, gathered supporters and fought to save her local NHS. Last week the campaign heard the great news – they’d saved their local hospital services!
