How can you get involved?
You can start by writing a letter to you local MP. Click here to download letter templates that you can use to make sure your concerns get heard.
Next, you can take advantage of our ad campaign. We’ve developed print ads (along with source files) so you can create you own custom sizes.
You can also take advantage of editorial pieces we have put together. You can run these directly in your publication or use them simply as inspiration for a customized message. We’ll keep adding more over the next few days, so please check back regularly.
Don’t forget that you can also share the report with your networks. A full version can be downloaded here.
We’d love it if you could share with us copies of what you have done. You can email us or keep us up-to-date by using the ‘Publisher Feedback’ button on the site.
