Write to your MP

We need your voice! 

The UK is hosting a huge climate summit this November in Glasgow. This is a big opportunity, and the reason communities around the country are coming together for the Great Big Green Week. 

If our government takes strong action now, it can set us on a cleaner, greener, fairer path to restore the UK’s natural environment, protect the world’s most vulnerable people and provide hundreds of thousands of new jobs across our communities. For our government to act with ambition on climate change, politicians need to hear that you want them to act.

Email your MP using the customisable template below. Simply type in your postcode, make the message your own and then it will be sent straight to your MP’s inbox.

STEP ONE: EMAIL YOUR MP

It is more important than ever to create a voice for change that cannot be ignored. Use our customisable template to send an email to your MP. Simply type in your postcode, make the message your own, add in your personal details and then it will be sent straight to your MP’s inbox.

If you don’t feel comfortable asking them for a meeting just yet then that’s ok, just remove that ask from the email.

STEP TWO: CONNECT WITH YOUR COMMUNITY

Use our Facebook groups to find others in your constituency to see if anyone else has contacted your MP.

STEP THREE: FOLLOW UP

Once you’ve emailed your MP, you should receive an automatic reply confirming that it has been received and a time frame for when they will reply (usually 1-2 weeks, but it can be longer). 

If your MP doesn’t get back to you within the time frame, it’s always worth a follow-up email or phone call. Sometimes emails get lost in inboxes, or their offices are dealing with a lot of enquiries.
