In recent years, some of Tearfund’s church partners, working at the local level, have been integrating local-level advocacy into their church and community mobilisation (CCM) work and are seeing significant impact as a result. Collectively, this has become known as ‘CCM advocacy’.

This guide draws on learning and experience to provide a brief overview of what is involved, as well as step-by-step guidance about how to apply CCM advocacy practically at the local level.
