Campaigning

Simply, campaigning is doing something so that a change takes place. For example making a politician aware of lipoedema so that they ask questions about lipoedema services and support service improvements.

You can campaign by sending a letter or an email, by contacting local organisations and requesting or organising local meetings or events. They are all useful ways of increasing awareness and bringing about change.

Personal stories are powerful; they are memorable and people react to them. If you would like to share your story with us to see if we can use it as a case study in our campaigns and/or on our website, please contact us at info@lipoedema.co.uk.
