You can find out who your MP is, along with other information such as their interests and previous voting record, at  www.theyworkforyou.com

Your MPs contact details should be easy to find online using a quick internet search or through their website. Alternatively you can contact us and we will find them for you.

All MPs have constituency surgeries which are usually held on a Friday, although sometimes at weekends or in the evenings. These are an opportunity to ask your MP questions and are an effective way of engaging your MP face-to-face.

Use our template letter to set up a meeting your MP by sending a letter or email explaining what issue you would like to discuss and asking when they would be willing to meet you. If you don't hear back from them within a week, ring their office to follow it up. 

Once your meeting is set up, find out how long you will have with your MP and make sure you inform them of any other people who may also be coming with you to the meeting.

It is important to prepare well for meeting with your MP. Follow our suggestions for 'Issues to raise with your MP' for some ideas and do let us know if you would like us to send you a constituency briefing.
