Writing to your MP is a great way to raise awareness of Auditory Verbal therapy and Auditory Verbal UK’s mission of wanting all deaf babies and children to have the same opportunities in life as their hearing peers.
Politicians have the power to help make sure that every child has the opportunity to access Auditory Verbal therapy. We know that politicians listen to their constituents and writing to them is the most effective way to make your voice heard. Taking local action with your MP can lead to national change for all deaf babies and children in the UK.
Find your MP
You can contact your local MP either by email, phone, or post.
Although handwritten letters can sometimes stand out, it is more likely that you will receive a response via email. Plus, if they do respond, you will have a better record of your correspondence.
Emails also allow you to share digital media like photos and videos. You may like to link them to:
- AVUK's website- avuk.org
- Our GSK Impact Award YouTube Video (for even more context into our work)
