On Thursday 12 December, the United Kingdom will return to the polls to choose their representatives in Westminster and ultimately who will form the next Government*.
It’s important that whoever is elected hears from you, their constituent, and understands why it’s vital that people with eating disorders get help quickly. We’re asking you to contact your local candidates to call for their support in ensuring that eating disorders are caught early, and that people of all ages can get high quality treatment as soon as they need it.
Healthcare is a devolved issue, which means that the Governments in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland determine health policy for the NHS in their own countries. However, your Member of UK Parliament (MP) will still be able to support the campaign to make a difference on eating disorders in your country.
With just a few clicks you can send a letter to all candidates in your area, showing that this issue matters to you and asking them to pledge their support.
We have written our own manifesto about what actions we would like to see the next Government take. You can read these below.
