ExcludedUK Events

Please encourage your MP to join this extremely important meeting on behalf of their constituents who have been excluded from Government support schemes! 

WHAT IS AN APPG:

All-Party Parliamentary Groups (APPGs) are informal, cross-party groups formed by MPs and Members of the House of Lords who share a common interest in a particular policy area, region or country.

While they are not official parliamentary committees these groups can sometimes be influential because of their non-partisan, bicameral approach to an issue.

Following a live Q&A with MP Jamie Stone with 50 attendees across the #excludedUK community, held in an online Zoom meeting, it was strongly suggested that as a result of the impending urgency and need for this cause to be brought to serious debate, that an APPG should be set up in order for cross party members of parliament to discuss ways in which the Treasury may be able to support all of the various groups affected.

TEMPLATE LETTER REQUEST:
Here is a suggestion of the letter you could send to them:

Dear [insert MP name here],

I am writing to you as a concerned constituent asking you to attend the inaugural meeting of the ExcludedUK All-Party Parliamentary Group set up by Jamie Stone MP on Tuesday 7th July at 10am in an online meeting.

Please contact Jamie Stone MP for details.

There are millions of people in the UK who have fallen through the cracks of the Government support schemes who have now gone over 100 days with no income and no support. The British taxpayers who have been excluded come from a wide variety of backgrounds - some have been excluded simply for changing jobs in March, making a withdrawal from their pensions or simply for being the director of a limited company among so many others.

Please represent your constituents like me by attending this cross-party meeting.

Could you confirm you will be attending to both me and Jamie Stone MP?

Thank you,

[Your name]

WHO ARE EXCLUDEDUK
 
ExcludedUK is a newly formed non-profit NGO and serves as a collective platform for those entirely or largely excluded from the UK Government's Covid-19 financial support measures. We are a rapidly growing organisation and an inclusive community, representing a broad spectrum of individuals and businesses, but all sharing one common thread: we are excluded.As an organisation we will play a crucial role in facilitating support and assistance on multiple levels, both for now and into the future.Our aim is to build a stronger platform, raise awareness, lobby for support, raise funds for legal challenges and help enable the changes that are needed for those excluded.Most importantly, our hope is that our efforts can help propel affected individuals and businesses forward in the face of adversity resulting from Covid-19 and being excluded from Government support, while equally ensuring we are all able to help each other emerge from this crisis.
