CAMPAIGN IN YOUR AREA

Our campaign is based on a straightforward idea – the louder our collective voice, the harder it will be for our politicians to ignore our calls for change. Local campaigns, which deliver for your community, are often one of the most effective ways you can strengthen our campaign and collective voice.

For guidance, tips, or advice on what you can do, we have produced a local Campaign Toolkit

WHAT YOU CAN DO

WRITE TO YOUR ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES

Sending a message to your MP is vital to show them that assisted dying matters to voters.  It is also the best way you can help to influence their thinking and demonstrate the passion behind our movement.

JOIN A LOCAL GROUP 

Our Local Groups are an opportunity for like-minded people to come together in a social setting and make friends, debate, and campaign for change. 

Get involved with one of our local groups in North London, Bristol, Brighton, Wessex, or Cardiff; if there isn’t one near you already, start one by contacting claire.macdonald@mydeath-mydecision.org.uk

ENGAGE WITH LOCAL POLITICAL PARTIES 

If you are already a member of a political party, then using your grassroots connections to put assisted dying on the agenda can be a powerful way to start a conversation with your local representatives.

MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD

As well as the above steps, you can also take personal action by joining an NHS patient participation group and putting assisted dying on the agenda, quizzing your local Chief Constable at a regular local meeting, asking for your council to pass a local motion in support of assisted dying, writing to the Secretary of State for Justice and urging him to hold an inquiry, or even use your local networks to build our movement.
