What do I need to do?

Signing up is easy. Once you have decided that your institution wants to sign the manifesto all you need to do is:

Sign and return the manifesto sign up sheet located at the bottom of this page to the NCCPE, Arnolfini, 16 Narrow Quay, Bristol, BS1 4QA, or email us a copy at We will acknowledge receipt of this within 10 working days.

Provide a logo (jpeg), an image of your institution (jpeg), a brief description of your institution's approach to public engagement, your url, and a quote from the Manifesto signatory explaining why you have signed up. We will use these on your Manifesto web page and for promotion purposes.

We will contact the nominated contact point at your university or research institute to discuss how we might support your work. This could include a consultation with your senior team; participation in relevant workshops/ events and networking events; facilitation of a staff day; phone support; introductions to relevant people who may be able to offer support; participation in online support network etc.

The Support it section of the website is a growing resource to support your work in embedding engagement, and we encourage you to make use of the resources here.
