Campaigners

Campaigning can be very rewarding.   We aim to maximise that buzz by helping people to be effective at getting 20mph limits implemented on your streets.

Anna Semlyen’s Campaign Manager and Jeremy Leach in London provide grant funded services to support local activists to press for change.  Services are free (other than materials like stickers), though we welcome donations.  There are nearly 300 active local 20s Plenty for Us groups around the country with some wonderfully effective volunteer campaigners. See here

20's Plenty for Us offer anyone interested in being active on 20mph limits the following: - 

Access to this website with a wide range of resources, briefings – e.g. on air pollution, press releases, posters, graphics, stickers, template petitions, template letters to councillors, case studies of local campaigns, advice on arguing the case to various professionals, power point presentations, 20s Plenty Rap Poetry (a rhyming summary of our message) and we are constantly adding more.

20’s Plenty stickers in various sizes (for wheelie bins, car bumpers, car windows and bikes)

Starting a campaign pack (see below)

Support in that you are not alone! In fact the power of our campaign is that it is such a universal aspiration.

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 yourlocality@20splentyforus.org.uk email address.  Plus send your postal address to anna.s@20splentyforus.org.uk 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.
