Peter runs a very busy and accessible constituency office in Hove. It’s fantastic to think that people are interested in being involved and helping. At the moment we get a lot of requests so Peter is having to prioritise applications from his own constituency of Hove and Portslade.
If you’re interested please send in a CV and application letter to email@example.com We will keep your details on file and do our best if an opportunity arises.
We book Westminster work experience a year ahead so please ensure you contact us in plenty of time and include a CV and covering letter.
We always do our best to accommodate as many people as possible but please don’t be too disappointed if you don’t hear from us.
HELP FROM YOUR MP
Peter has surgeries with constituents on Fridays, usually in the constituency office in Hove. This is run on an appointment system – you can email (please include your name and address) at firstname.lastname@example.org Alternatively, our specialist caseworker, Stella Pentecost, can see you Monday – Thursday.
Please email email@example.com or call 01273 933380 for help and advice.
His constituency office is at:
99 Church Road
TEL: 01273 933380
We can only accept casework from constituents living in Hove, Portslade or Hangleton. If you send emails or letters please provide a confirmation address. We cannot act on behalf of residents in another constituency. You should always make contact with your own Member of Parliament.
What issues CAN’T we deal with?
If you have a problem which is the responsibility of local government, such as your local council, you should contact the local councillor. If you have tried to seek support without success we may be able to look into the matter for you.
You can find your local councillor HERE https://present.brighton-hove.gov.uk/mgFindMember.aspx
There are some things my office cannot do, these include:
- Give legal advice or interfere with ongoing legal proceedings
- Offer consumer or contract advice
- Offer debt advice or advice on financial services
- Become involved in disputes with other individuals
- Requests to sign or witness official documents
- Peter can only sign passports or official documents if he knows you personally, in line with the guidance issued with the application form. It isn’t enough to ‘know of you’ and MPs will usually apply a high bar of personal knowledge of the constituent before agreeing to sign official documents.
