Contacting an MP

Anyone can contact their local MP, all you need to do is ring their local office and make a time to meet.

MP’s have a responsibility to meet the needs of people in their electorate and are sensitive to what their electorate needs as they need the support of local people to get re-elected.

Our advocacy toolkit we used for our Kalydeco campaign has great information about meeting and writing with decision makers.

Having a personal story has the greatest impact and are a powerful way to get a message across.

You can find the contact details for all New Zealand MPs on the New Zealand Parliament website (scroll to the bottom to download the contact spreadsheet).
