Lobbying Group

Members launched this group in 2006 with the aim of lobbying public officials and local organizations. Our activities reflect the true spirit of Soroptimism. It is important to remember that SI has a voice at the United Nations, and we aim to ensure that voice is heard locally, nationally and internationally. We welcome the active involvement of all members, both in current campaigns and in raising new issues that are of concern.

The group has been actively involved in the campaign for Solihull to become a Fairtrade Borough. We hold stalls Solihull borough events and our own ‘Fun in the Park’, which has resulted in excellent media coverage. This has also inspired links with local schools to encourage children to help developing countries while having fun.
