WRITE TO YOUR MP
CONTACTING YOUR MP IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING YOU CAN DO
Sending a message to your MP is vital to show them that assisted dying is important voters, to influence their thinking and to demonstrate the passion behind our movement.
If you can, we encourage you to try to meet with your MP in person at one of their surgeries. This will give you an opportunity to brief them more thoroughly than you could by email, and it’s easier to get concrete commitments from them to take action.
We have provided a helpful guide for meeting with your MP and some answers to common FAQs about assisted dying. We have also prepared a briefing you can give to your MP to get them up to speed on the case for a compassionate assisted dying law in England and Wales.
If you can’t visit in person, you can easily identify your MP or MS and send them an email at www.writetothem.com.
Alternatively, you can write a letter to your MP at: House of Commons, Westminster, London SW1A 0AA
What should I say to my MP?
For the most recent developments in the campaign, check out our news and comment page, or simply send a message to your MP or MS to let them know that you’ve joined My Death, My Decision and you’d like to know their views on assisted dying.
MPs receive hundreds of mass emails a day, but if you take the time to write a personalised message about why you support a compassionate assisted dying law then it is much more likely to get their attention.
