Campaigning can be very rewarding. We aim to maximise that buzz by helping people to be effective at getting local road signs changed to 20 mph.
Our Campaign Manager works to support local activists to press for change. Services are free (other than materials like stickers), though we welcome donations. There are around 100 active local 20s Plenty for Us groups around the country with some wonderfully effective volunteer campaigners. 20s Plenty for Us offer anyone interested in being active on 20mph limits the following: -

Look to see if there is a local 20’s Plenty for Us group where you live on the campaigner map here. If there isn’t, and you’d like to start a local group, please agree to have a firstname.lastname@example.org email address. Plus send your postal address to email@example.com to receive a free starter campaign pack with some of our materials like leaflets and stickers.
If you have suggestions for anything else we can do, or feedback please let us know.
And please, remember that 20's Plenty for Us is a "grass-roots" organisation. We know what its like to work in the community. We know the great successes that are possible and also some of the setbacks which are inevitable. We would like to help so please just ask.
20’s Plenty for Us is a hugely successful campaign which really supports and levers up the commitment of activists around the country. 20’s Plenty not only provides the best “bangs per buck” in terms of road danger reduction, but also maximises the effect of your campaign time.
