Your voice matters in the General Election

Elections are a great opportunity to have your voice heard on issues that matter to you.

Ask your local candidate

Your parliamentary candidates want to hear about the things that people in their local area care about, so that if elected they can represent you in Parliament.

At Leonard Cheshire we want to ensure that future MPs prioritise accessible train travel for disabled people.

Can you help us by asking your local candidate to pledge to make train travel accessible?

‘Accessible trains would widen my horizons!

‘It would make life easier. It’s that independence, that freedom. I’d be able to go visit my daughter in London.’ — Alison.

Everyone should be able to use the train to get to work or school, visit loved ones, take up hobbies and meet friends.

However, 33 per cent of disabled adults have experienced problems when travelling by train. This must change. 

Will you ask your local political candidates to pledge to making train travel accessible if they’re elected?

Advocacy pack

Arranging a meeting or attending a hustings event are also great ways to engage with your local candidates. Find out more about meeting your candidates and suggestions for what to ask them in our advocacy pack.
