In order to bring about change we need to take small and large actions that will build pressure on the Government to act.
Since we started our campaign the issue has been raised many times on the radio and TV and in newspapers. We also have a strong and growing social media presence and a petition with a huge amount of signatures that’s growing by the day.
Due to the perseverance of our members Many MPs are now supporting our campaign, writing to Matt Hancock and raising questions in Parliament.
We’ve come so far together but we still have a way to go.
We’re not powerless, our voices are starting to be heard and we must continue to build on the momentum we’ve already created
