Writing a letter to your MP or local councillor is a great way to get our message across. For every constituent who makes the effort to write a letter, MPs often assume there are many more constituents who are concerned about that issue, but don't bother writing.
It is easy to find your local MP/local councillors contact details. You can use: writetothem.com
which is easy to use and they also keep track (with your help!) of whether the MP replies, so you're more likely to get a response. You can also see how responsive your MP has been to other people writing to them from your constituency.
When contacting your MP, a short, handwritten or printed letter is most effective. You can use the template below.
