You can find out who your MP is and how to contact them by visiting the UK Parliament website.

Some advice for when you contact them: 

  • Introduce yourself, your interest in the topic, as well as any community groups that you represent or that you are a member of.
  • Be polite even if angry at government inaction or perceived prejudice.
  • Ask your MP to state their position – don’t allow them to sit on the fence.
  • Explain why your MP should be concerned, for example: How does the issue affect individuals in their constituency and the way they may vote?
  • Present your issues, and illustrate them with concrete examples and references. These reports may help.
  • Be clear and precise.
  • Ask your MP for concrete actions.
  • Give your MP a summary of the issues you’ve raised and the policy positions that you suggest.
  • Offer yourself as a resource, and ask if there is any further information that they may need on this issue.
  • Let them know you will keep track of how they vote and what they say in Parliament.
  • And don’t feel you can’t follow up.
