Our promise to you
At Hope for the Future, we believe that the relationship between constituents and their MP is the bedrock of democracy. Our research allows us to train and support constituents in how to work constructively with even the most challenging of MPs. It empowers constituents who need further experience, support and confidence to take control of their relationship with their MP and work for the change they wish to see in the world. Crucially, we want to maintain the integrity of your relationship with your MP by fulfilling the following promises.
We will never...
- Pursue an issue or relationship with your MP without your consent and cooperation .
- Encourage you to pursue an issue that you do not feel is a valuable priority.
- Share details of your meeting with others without your consent.
We will always...
- Take your lead on how you would like to take forward your relationship with your MP.
- Offer you the best and most relevant support and advice we have available.
- Endeavour to ensure you have a safe and positive experience engaging with your MP.
