Contacting your MP or local Councillor is a great way to raise an issue with them and they can often provide you with help or support if you're experiencing a problem.
There're lots of different ways to get in touch with them. Most people tend to send a letter or an email but sometimes you might want to phone up their office or go along to see them at one of their "local surgeries" where they will come along to meet with people who want to see them.
Getting in touch with your MP or local Councillor can sometimes feel intimidating, especially if you've never done it before, but don't worry, thousands of people write to them every week. They are elected to represent their constituents and are usually happy to help if they can. By hearing from you, you might even highlight an issue they are already interested in and they might be able to offer some extra support.
You can find out who your local MP is at FindyourMP or call the Public Information Office in Parliament on 020 7219 4272. You'll also be able to find out your MP's office address or email so you can get in touch with them.
It can sometimes take a few weeks for you to get a full response from your MP or local Councillor, or even longer if they have to write to other organisations about something you've raised. Don't worry! If you haven't heard back after 2 or 3 weeks, you should give their office a phone call just to make sure they received your letter.
