This toolkit is designed to help community organisations use the free and low cost web tools already widely available.

Between April 2011 and March 2013 The Young Foundation, as part of the Building Local Activism programme supported by the Big Lottery Fund (BIG), worked with six small organisations or individuals that wanted to use digital tools to campaign on issues that mattered to them. The organisations were supported to develop and run web-based campaigns using free or low-cost web tools.

Here we outline the learning of the work, and boil it down to a practical toolkit which is designed to inspire other community organisations or individuals to campaign on issues that matter to them using free and low-cost web tools.
