TEMPLATE, (adapt it to your own words).  Then copy and paste it into the online form above, or print it and mail it to your MP at House of Commons


Dear {MP NAME},  

My name is {YOUR NAME} and I am a constituent of {OUR CONSTITUENCY}. I am writing to you today because I am concerned about the issue of homelessness.   This has been debated for decades in parliament and still nothing changes because the public and political will is not seen to be there to see through changes.    

In my own experience  …. Your story/ view.  

I am asking you to take the following steps:  (suggestions, use your own words)

  • Appoint a minister for homelessness;  they are dozens of great private initiatives out there – let’s see the government do something too
  • Land Reform – this is a serious and urgent need.  An Empty Buildings law…

In your response I would like you to outline the ways you intend to address this on my behalf. If you’re unable to address this personally, I would like to request that you escalate my letter to the relevant Minister or department.  

Please do keep me informed of any progress made.  

I look forward to hearing from you.  

Yours faithfully,
