This event is exclusive to Friends of Tortoise
in partnership with Sheila McKechnie Foundation
This is a digital-only event, streamed live from our newsroom.
Each year, the Sheila McKechnie Foundation Campaigner Awards celebrates the best campaigns and campaigners in the UK. They look for those who have made change happen most effectively, creatively and courageously.
This year’s shortlist includes incredible individuals, determined groups, innovative charities, and unusual coalitions. They have campaigned on everything from sign language to social media, and from clean air to contraception. Small and local, big and national — it’s all here.
Tortoise is delighted to be the media partner for the Awards ceremony, as part of our Community Network week. We would love you to join us for an hour of celebration and inspiration with our host, the writer and comedian Viv Groskop. Bring a glass of bubbly or a cup of tea and cheer for your favourite campaign.

The Tortoise Community Network
At Tortoise we do journalism differently. Our Community Network enables thousands of people join us for free as fully-funded Tortoise members. Members form the core of our reporting. They come to our meetings, tell us what they think and what they know — and improve the stories we cover.
Dozens of non-profit organisations and charities have joined us, sharing their knowledge of working at grassroots level in areas like education, health and inequality. They introduce us to the people they work with, whose voices too often go unheard.
If you’d like to find out more about the Tortoise Community Network, please email email@example.com.
