The strength of our campaign in parliament relies on your personal contact with your local MP. Many MPs will only take up issues that they know someone in their area is affected by. The best approach is to start by writing them a letter or an email asking for an appointment to come and see them. Talking to politicans face to face is the only way of making sure they understand. If you would like more help please Write to your MP.
If you would like to do more then please urge as many of your friends and family as possible to write to their MPs too. MPs really do use their postbag as a guide to which issues really matter to people.
You can also consider going to you local papers or regional TV. They will usually want to use your real name and may want a photograph too, although sometimes exceptions can be arranged. Media coverage is an important part of the campaign.
If you would like help getting in touch with local papers or you MP then please contact the Haemophilia Society's Policy and Communications Manager Dan Farthing on 0131 557 5953.
