PIP pledge

Ask your MP to take the Epilepsy Action PIP Pledge.

We are campaigning to improve PIP for people with epilepsy. We are asking MPs to take the Epilepsy Action PIP Pledge. Taking the pledge shows they recognise the problem and are committed to doing what they can to change it.

Hundreds of you have contacted your MP and asked them to take the Epilepsy Action PIP Pledge. Thanks to your support so far, 36 MPs have committed to fighting for a fairer PIP process for people with epilepsy.

We work with these MPs to make sure epilepsy has a voice in parliament. With support from us, they speak in debates, ask parliamentary questions, and write to ministers about the issues facing people with epilepsy.

How you can get involved

We want you to continue to tell MPs about the problems people with epilepsy are facing when applying for PIP. We want you to tell them what it is like for people with epilepsy when they don’t have this extra financial support. We want you to tell them, they must do something to change this.

If you want to ask your MP to take the Epilepsy PIP Pledge, please fill in the form below. We will email you a template letter or email to send to your MP. We will also send you instructions on how to do this. There will be a space in the letter for you to share your own experiences if you wish.

You can share information about the Epilepsy PIP Pledge on social media using the hashtag #PIPPledge. The more people that write to their MP, the more likely change will happen.

If you want to do even more, you can take part in the PIP Summer of Action. Throughout the summer we are joining over 80 other charities to support people to meet their local MP and talk to them about PIP. You can find out more here

if you are writing on behalf of an organisation
we will reply to you at this email with a template email for your MP
