Who We Are

For WHAT WE DO click here. For our 'Mission Statement', click here.

The management of the campaign is undertaken by the elected steering committee, the members of which also do a lot of practical work organising events, etc. 

The office itself is run on a shoestring - Claire James is the Campaigns Coordinator (part-time), assisted by volunteers.

Of course, the campaign is more than just the people listed on this page - it also includes everyone who is active in our campaigning, either regularly or on an occasional basis and supporters who, paying a few pounds a month each, make our vital work possible.
