Building effective campaigns and groups can be really challenging, and a difficult process to start. We’re here to help you build sustainable campaigns and hit the ground running by providing locally-rooted long term support, infrastructure, and resources.
We prefer to design bespoke workshops around the groups needs. Here are a few examples of sessions we could run with your group:
If you would like to discuss an idea or request support for your group get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org
Grassroots groups often struggle to apply for the funding they need to increase their impact. This regularly bottlenecks campaigns from capitalising on key political moments. We also offer more long-term support and project incubation to help new or existing groups increase their capacity. Please read our Campaign Support Offer to find out more about how it works and our eligibility criteria.
If this sounds like something your project needs get in touch with email@example.com to discuss your idea.

Campaign Support in Action
Since June, 2019, Tidal has been actively supporting Our Future Leeds (OFL). OFL was originally started as a response to the Leeds City Council’s Climate Emergency Declaration, which has the aim of getting Leeds to be carbon neutral by 2030. OFL’s goal is to build a people-powered movement to create a sustainable, liveable, safe and socially just Leeds by 2030.
Our Future Leeds is based on four core activities:

Tidal has been supporting OFL to strategise how to achieve their ambitions and plans. In particular Tidal has been helping to facilitate conversations around identity, purpose, principles, as well as writing funding bids to help bring the project's vision of a Leeds Climate Emergency Hub to life.
