Do you want to do more than sign a petition? Then why not become a local lobbyist?

A supporter lobbying against tax dodging Local lobbyists help take our messages of justice to the heart of government. It is a powerful way of changing and influencing laws and policies.

Being a local lobbyist will involve meeting with your local MP up to four times a year, or if that is not possible, writing to them on different issues.

You don't need to be an expert on the issues; we’ll provide you with all the information and support you require. All you need is a passion for ending poverty.

  • Direct contact with your MP is the best way to achieve change for the world's poorest.'

'I would encourage anyone to sign up, and I would tell them what a great deal of help Christian Aid gives to us.' Mary Stirling, local lobbyist, Argyll and Bute.

How it works

Approximately four times a year Christian Aid will send you a local lobbyist pack in the mail or by email. This contains:

  • A feedback form which is really important for us here at Christian Aid. It’s really useful for us to know which MP’s have been contacted and what they think about different issues. You can also use this as an opportunity to tell us what you think of the campaign and if you have any ideas about how we could better take an issue forward.
