Amplifying local voices for political impact

Did you know that only 10-15% of people contact their MPs each year?

And 75% of people can't name their MP?

If we want to see ambitious policy, for climate and nature, we need to show an appetite, and that starts with us as communities.

It starts with conversation.

Every year we support over 1000 citizens to speak meaningfully with their local politicians*.

This coming year, we want to make it 2000.

This coming year, be part of it.

Let's make the message
TOO BIG
to ignore

*We support people to work with:Members of Parliament (MPs)Member of Scottish Parliament (MSP)Members of the Senedd (MS)Councillor MayorsParliamentary candidates

Constituent in South Cambridgeshire

It makes a big difference knowing that we can get your expert advice on how to make sure our campaigning is most effective. And it gives a sense of togetherness in being part of a bigger push for change…Thanks to the hard work of your charity it feels like we can all do our bit to make a difference.

Constituent in Welwyn Hatfield 

The support I received from Hope for the Future gave me reassurance and confidence - my meeting with my MP wouldn't have been the same without the help without HFTF.

Anthony Bullock, after meeting with Daniel Zeichner MP

I'm impressed by the way Hope for the Future is facilitating meetings between MPs and their constituents. This dialogue is so important as we generally get a very biased view of politics and this brings a much greater understanding that we are all working together for a fairer and more sustainable world.

This was a really excellent workshop, and an hour very well spent. I have recommended your work to a number of people since and what you shared has changed my approach to lobbying the MP significantly.

I think it was one of the most thought-through and effective talks on lobbying I’ve come across.

Hope for the Future has proved to be a tremendous resource. All that have had first-hand experience of working with them have received valuable lessons on how best to interact with politicians.
