What is ATM Policy and Advocacy?

Our Policy & Advocacy covers a wide range of activities that influence policy decision-makers locally and nationally. Such advocacy includes meeting decision-makers to share information, experiences, and expertise on a range of issues affecting the community and society at large. Our policy & advocacy is about building long-term relationships, forming networks, and building public awareness around shared goals and challenges with the aim of changing policy and specific practices that affect our service users at the grassroots level.

The purpose of policy & advocacy, what it does for the community? 

At the Anti-Tribalism Movement, we aim to play a vital role in the development and implementation of public policy to help promote an informed, healthy, and strong civil society for all. We observe the challenges and aspirations of our service users and record their experiences and attitudes to public policies. Our purpose is to filter these experiences to decision-makers and identify any gaps, risks in policy attitudes as well as resources to effect change for the community. We use the evidence we generate to inform decision makers and the wider public of how to best respond to community needs.

How we undertake our researches?

The basis of our policy & advocacy is findings and recommendations. This is carried out by wide research through interviews, surveys, and focus groups with individuals, groups, and communities affected by our thematic policy briefings. To share our findings with wider community, each year we invite 50 leading UK Somali organisations, leaders and academics via one day Unite Summit to enable wider community backing for our policy briefing recommendations, so that UK Somali community is engaging their relevant stakeholders with reliable data, insight and research for change in policy and practice.
