The Outreach Team
Outreach is dedicated to making sure that actions and events are supported by outreach to the public, and ensuring that when needed, actions have a Welcome Hub / Outreach Hub to provide attendees and the public with information and advice.

The Team and Current Situation
We are a small team of four, but growing. We're looking to expand the scope of work for the team to include different types of outreach and mobilisation. This is being worked out currently. If you're interested in coordinating outreach, we can discuss the changes with you.
As per the usual ways that XR teams works everyone involved in the work gets a full say on everything - so you will too - and we will look to add more people to the team with specific remits, or skills, as the development of future plans progresses.

Actions Carousel link role

Actions Circle hold regular meetings called 'Carousel' where they review upcoming action plans and decide which to take forward. Outreach has a seat at the table in those meetings and we need someone to be present to help action planners embed Outreach into their plans (where relevant) and to feedback upcoming plans to the rest of the Outreach team to recruit and plan for our support of those actions. As a 'link role', you would sit in meetings of both Outreach and Actions Carousel and feed information between both.

Action planners are encouraged and supported to build outreach into their action designs.


  • Represent Outreach circle in Actions Carousel, including meetings.
  • Finding an appropriate substitute if you can’t make an Actions Carousel meeting.
  • Share relevant information between Outreach and Actions Carousel teams.
  • Encourage and support action planners to build outreach into action designs.
  • Update Events Coordinator in good time about upcoming actions which require Outreach.
