Writing to your elected representatives.
On this page you will find template and blank letters for writing to your MPs (UK-wide, English and English & Welsh policies), AMs (Welsh devolved policies), MLAs (Northern Irish devolved policies) and MSPs (Scottish devolved policies). Each letter has advice on personalising your response.

An Early Day Motion (EDM) has been tabled in parliament calling for an alternative to parliamentary prayers, to make parliament welcoming to people of all faiths and none. Please urge your MP to sign the EDM.
Religious academies, free schools and voluntary aided schools are able to discriminate against pupils whose families do not share the faith of the school. The government plans to open more discriminatory faith schools. It's time to end, not extend, religious discrimination.
Writing to your MP or local representative?
Issues where secularists have concerns are often in devolved policy areas (e.g. education or healthcare), so you may prefer to use the specific template letters for your AM (Wales), MLA (Northern Ireland) or MSP (Scotland). However, it can still be worth raising these issues with your MP.
- MPs still take up casework issues even if it is a devolved matter.
- MPs are still important figures in their respective parties and play a role in forming/influencing party policy on devolved issues.
- Devolved issues are often affected by many non-devolved policy areas such as equalities legislation.
Equally you may not want to neglect your local authority representatives.
