NSPCC launches e-bulletin for MPs

The NSPCC has relaunched its parliamentary newsletter, ChildCentred, as an email bulletin.

The new online version will initially be emailed to MPs and peers four times a year. It lists all the Bills currently going through Parliament that will affect children, and states the charity's position. It also contains details of recent NSPCC research and links to further information.

Charlotte Smith, parliamentary adviser at the NSPCC, hopes the new format will make it easier for politicians to read.

"The lengthy articles we had before were not necessarily what MPs wanted, given the amount of post they receive," she said. "We want this to be a shorter, snappier document with links to websites if readers want to find out more."

Smith added that the bulletin was the first step in a policy to communicate with parliamentarians and researchers via the internet.

"Parliament is moving so fast, and you can get an email out quickly," she said. "To get something printed takes time. Email allows you to be more reactive."
