On this page, you’ll find a default model letter that we highly recommend you personalise (Members of Parliament are more likely to take notice of personalised emails and queries).
The personal touch goes a long way with MPs. We recommend that you explain why it matters to you, your family or people in your local area that the non-religious should continue to be equally protected in law. If you have any accounts or stories about people you know who have been affected by this issue make sure to include those.
If you are, parent, carer, or teacher, you might want to raise why it is important for you to have a curriculum that is inclusive of humanist beliefs
If you have had, or want a humanist wedding, you might want to add why it is important for you to have a ceremony that reflects you and your partners deeply held beliefs.
If you have, or would like to, make use of a non-religious pastoral carer in a hospital or other setting, you might want to add how this support helped you and why it is important that it is available.
MPs can be very busy and receive a large number of letters, so may not respond immediately. If you have not received a response within two weeks of writing, you should send a follow up email.
