This year there will be an Election in both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. It’s a great time to let your politicians, candidates and newly elected representatives know that you want them to Act On Poverty!

Christian Aid Week is seven days with so many ways to make a difference. One of these ways is to call on your MP, TD, or candidates to use their position to make lasting change possible.

Please write, email or phone your local representatives with the following message or similar:

Dear _____________


I believe everyone can live a full life, free from poverty. I believe that poverty is not inevitable and that we can all make a difference.

Please use your position as my MP / TD to act on poverty.

Please let me know what action you intend to take to tackle the climate crisis and support those living in poverty globally.


Yours sincerely,


If you are organizing an event at your church for Christian Aid Week why not invite your local politician to attend and your can tell them face to face why you want them to act on poverty.
