| How you can help
The way to keep politicians interested in animal welfare is to speak to them about your concerns on a particular issue and to ask for their views. You can do this either via a meeting, email or letter. If there is an issue you feel strongly about write a letter to your Member of Parliament letting them know you think it needs addressing. The correspondence never needs to be long, in fact the shorter the better as politicians are so busy. You may wish to ask them if they are a member of APGAW and if not, let them know they are entitled to join the group and may find it useful.
All Members are contactable by post: Name of MP, House of Commons, London, SW1A 0AA
If you have a specific concern or query, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Whilst we cannot promise a lengthy response, your comments will certainly be read and taken forward to the chairman of the Group and we do appreciate the time you will have taken to get involved in animal welfare matters.
