Write to your Member of Parliament

We encourage you to speak to the local NSW or Victoria members for:

  • Where you study
  • Where you work
  • Where you live now
  • Your home town

The key to communicating with members of parliament is make it personal and make the issue you are raising relevant to their local electorate. In order of level of impact it is best to:

  • Visit  your local member and speak to them in person
  • Speak to them directly on the phone
  • Email them your concerns
  • Write them a letter

Usually it is best to email first, ring to follow up and then request an appointment in person to speak to your member.

Letter Templates

To help you in preparing your email or letter we have created the following templates specific to your state.

Important: Use this template as a guide and personalise it with your own ideas. We don’t want to send dozens of copies of the same letter to different politicians. Personal messages work better!
