Campaign with others in your local area

  • Lobby your local MP

    Politicians are out of touch with the British public on assisted dying. We need your help to ensure your MP is aware of local public support for a change in the law.

    We also need you to make sure your MP is aware of support from other groups (such as doctors). Drum up local support with a petition and take this to your MP, or invite your MP to a local event.

  • Engage with local political parties

    Raise the issue of assisted dying at local political party meetings. If you or a member of your group belongs to a political party, the political ‘grassroots’ can be a great place to talk about the assisted dying campaign.

    Most political parties allow local party meetings to suggest their policy priorities by putting forward motions to annual conferences.

    Local parties also play a key role in selecting candidates for elections and local party members will have the chance to question local representatives. Putting pressure on MPs and candidates through local parties shows that assisted dying is an important issue shared by their voters.
