Election 2020 – Issues you can raise on the doorstep!

As you may be aware, the General Election will be held on Saturday, 8th February, 2020. Politicians will be calling to your door and looking for your vote – this is a great opportunity to raise the important issues affecting you.


This is the time for our voices to be heard! The most significant way to make an impact as a community is for a few core issues to be highlighted by those affected by spina bifida and/or hydrocephalus across the country.


With this in mind, we are suggesting a few talking points which you may want to consider raising when canvassers call to the door. Don’t be shy! Let them know what you think and what your ideas are for a better future… We need Equality Now!

If you believe in our cause, then we need you to take action.


If you can take a few minutes to contact your local TD and let them know that you think that the situation for those living with disabilities is unacceptable, then we stand a greater chance of seeing real, sustainable change.


You can find your local TD contact information here: https://www.whoismytd.com/


Please let us know when you contact your TD so that we are aware of your support, and so that we can follow up with them to see what progress is being made arising from your representation!
