- MPs will tell you that meeting with them is the best way to influence them
- Make an appointment for a virtual meeting by contacting their local constituency office which you will be able to find on Google
- Remember it really doesn’t matter if she/he is not your own constituency MP as long as you meet with someone who is
- It’s always best to go as a small group of three to five
- Always prepare carefully for your meeting
- Write out what you want to say to your MP. Try to put this is your own words and do draw on personal experiences or those of friends or relatives in Yemen if applicable. Keep this reasonably short.
- Have a short handout ready to give them about the humanitarian crisis.
- Prepare a list of ‘Asks’ setting clearly what you would like your MP to do and hand these to her/him
