Securitisation of Health group training: Spokesperson Skills

Saturday 20th April @ 10:30 am 2:00 pm

The Securitisation of Health group continues to grow, and we’re preparing for a strong year of continued resistance to the Prevent Duty and campaigning for an end to the duty in the NHS.

As part of this we are holding two in-person training days for group members (new and longstanding) to support the development of your campaigning and spokesperson skills. Information on session one can be found here.

Session 2: Spokesperson skills

Co-facilitated by Medact’s Communications Manager TJ Chuah, this session aims to upskill you as a spokesperson by exploring helpful approaches and skills for strong campaign comms. We’ll cover the essentials, from writing articles and responding to media and press requests, to developing key messages and practical interview skills.

About the group

Through research and campaigns, the Securitisation of Health Group aims to shift understandings of ‘security’, from typically “hard” measures (border enforcement, a punitive criminal justice system, counter-terror measures) and advocate for collective and human security, health and wellbeing.
