We lead a discussion about what things are happening in the
area, that people are not happy about.
This could be a problem with rubbish, pavements, or anti-social
We then talk about contacting your local councillor, MP or
council to get these things changed.
We remind them that councillors and MPs want your vote and
should listen to you.
If you have invited a politician to your workshop, now is a good
time to tell them what things are going wrong in your area.
Sometimes we write a letter with the group about the problems in
the area which they can send to their local politicians.

envelope to see an example of a letter we wrote with a group about
bus passes (word doc).
Speaking Up has been supported by the Electoral Commission to provide FREE workshops to encourage people with learning disabilities to gain a better understanding of politics, become active citizens and register to vote.
