#GetInvolved sessions are opportunities for young people to learn the basics of politics – from canvassing to campaigning with real hands-on experience and more. You can sign up to the Patchwork Foundation’s #GetInvolved programme here.

Participants attend sessions led by influential political figures to gain greater knowledge on the internal workings of parties, politics and elections. Our #GetInvolved sessions are currently focused on engagement with the General Election, providing engaging and informative experiences for young people to develop their own skills, confidence and views. To date, over 4,000 young people have engaged with the programme and have canvassed and campaigned on a grassroots level.

During the 2024 election periods, they will work with the four main parties to create unique opportunities for young people to understand local campaigning; from phone banking, to door knocking to encouraging turnout on election day. They’ll have opportunities across the country for everyone – so register your interest below and find out how you can #GetInvolved!

These opportunities are open to any individuals regardless of experience levels, and they particularly encourage those who have not canvassed or engaged with politics before. For any queries or concerns, email getinvolved@patchworkfoundation.org.uk
