  • Discover how to get your voice heard in Westminster

    Created: 26/11/2019

    From women’s suffrage, to equal marriage and climate change; campaigning, lobbying and working together to shape and influence the national agenda has always been a pivotal part of democratic engagement.

    In 2014, then 14-year-old Lucy Gavaghan started a petition calling for supermarket chains to stop selling eggs which came from caged hens. A short while later, Tesco became the first to adopt the proposal. Similarly, 19-year-old Rhys Parker started an e-petition calling for a cap on youth car insurance, which was then debated in the House of Commons.

    How did they do it? And how can you also get your voice heard at the heart of British democracy? UK Parliament’s outreach team has the answers.
