STEP 2

Add a personal comment

If you feel comfortable, you should add a personal message.

Numbers and policy briefs are important to win minds, but it is always sharing experiences that wins hearts.

You might want to tell your MP about an aged care worker who went above and beyond in the care of someone you love. Alternatively, you might have visited an aged care facility that couldn’t deliver the care its residents deserved because of staffing issues.

Personal stories also help Parliamentarians grasp the broader story. If you have struggled to meet the cost pressures of day to day life, or if you know someone who has, telling your local Member about it will make them a better representative for you and your community.

An optional step is to include some local data to help tell the story.

In the template, the segments coloured in red are opportunities to add data about your electorate.

You can find the data to include in the table below, just find your electorate in the list. (You can search your electorate here.)
