We need your help to get prospective parliamentary candidates (the people who hope to be elected as Members of the Senedd) to sign up to the Rally for Rare campaign.
We want to target prospective parliamentary candidates in every constituency in Wales. If you are able to, please send letters, emails and social media posts to as many candidates standing in your constituency as you can!
We have templates and guidance on how you can contact your prospective parliamentary candidate via:
You can tweet your parliamentary candidate and use #Rally4Rare and #RareDisease. This will allow us to follow tweets and interact with them. Or, use our example tweet below, also available in Welsh.
Example Tweet: Hello (@Candidate Name) as you are a candidate in my area, please sign #Rally4Rare at geneticalliance.org.uk/rallyforrare to show your support for people with rare, genetic and undiagnosed conditions.
