Write to your MP

Writing to your MP is one of the easiest – and most effective – ways of getting your point across.

Speak out!

Stop children and young people being housed in B&Bs for longer than the six week legal limit!

We’re getting ready to write a report highlighting the experiences of children and young people who have lived in B&Bs and what needs to change.

We are looking for children and young people who have had this experience to take part in interviews to tell us their stories and what they think needs to change. If you or someone you know has lived in B&Bs while they were growing up and would be happy to talk to us about their experiences , please get in touch.

You can contact CRAE’s participation manager Maria via email at  : mstephens@crae.org.uk

When you write remember to add details explaining, in your own words, why you support the Change It! campaign and why you are asking your MP to back it. You could handwrite your letter on A3 paper to make it stand out!

To learn more about children's rights, homelessness and why we are campaigning to Change It read our campaign pack.

To get in touch with your MP:

  • type in your postcode here to find out who your MP is and to bring up an email form you can use to contact them.
  • to help you decide what to put in your letter, read our sample letter to MPs which gives information about the Change It! campaign and invites your MP to meet with you. Feel free to use this when you are writing your own letter but make sure to delete all the writing in red from your final copy!

Remember to keep in touch with us, send us a copy of any letter you send to your MP and let us know when they send you a reply! You can email us on changeit@crae.org.uk or phone 07951142105.
