Volunteer

 

 

Any offers to volunteer are greatly appreciated and we have many ways that you can help us out. Specifically, Grant and the local Association have two volunteer teams that regularly work in the constituency. These are described below. If you’d like to join in or to help out in any other way, please fill in the form at the bottom of this page.

MP’s Action Team (MPACT)

Grant runs what we call the MP Action Team (or MPACT for short) .

Essentially the team goes out (usually on a Saturday morning for a couple of hours) and knock on doors to assist residents with any problems or concerns they might have. These can be local, national or international in nature. Afterwards Grant writes back to people on their specific concerns, trying to help where he can.

The whole process lasts no more than a couple of hours. It is a really good opportunity to find out what issues, local people are actually interested in and even if residents don’t have any concerns, they get to know that their MP genuinely is interested in them!

Afterwards the team usually goes for a drink and quick bite to eat in a local pub; there is a good social atmosphere.

Delivery Network Team

Keeping in touch with Welwyn Hatfield residents is critical. Grant believes that in order to properly represent the interests of local people it’s vital to have ongoing two-way communication. We do this online via this website, through regular emails and of course through Grant making himself as available as possible within the community.

However, in many cases the traditional forms of community are still essential. Nothing quite beats a regular community newsletter, such as Grant’s Feedback leaflet.

Technology is great, but in order to genuinely keep in touch with all 75,000 residents a full-coverage Delivery Network is absolutely essential.

We’re proud to say that every home in Welwyn Hatfield is covered by the Delivery Network Team which consists of a group of 500 to 600 residents – each of whom do their bit to help.
Many of those in Grant’s Delivery Network Team are dog walkers or just enjoy getting a bit of exercise. All like the idea of making sure their local community knows what’s going on.

With nearly 50,000 front doors to reach, we need a big Delivery Network Team and so Grant’s always on the lookout for more volunteers. If you can help deliver some leaflets for us then please complete the form below. We will be more than grateful and Welwyn Hatfield residents will be kept better informed as a result. On receipt of your form a member of my team will be in touch within a couple of days:
