    Why Online Petitions Work
    Think of it this way: What if your company received thousands of emails from valued customers asking you to use a different supplier for your parts? What if you started to receive emails from each of your neighbours asking you to stop playing loud music at night? How quickly would you act?

    That’s the unique thing about creating an online petition on when you specify an email address for your target, each time a supporter signs your petition, an email is automatically sent directly to that person. Governments, companies and individuals value their reputations and feel accountable to their neighbours, constituents and customers. When hundreds or even thousands of emails arrive in their inboxes, the message is very hard to ignore.

    " MandateNow, supported by Survivors UK, Respond and The Survivors Trust, the national umbrella agency for over 130 specialist sexual violence and childhood sexual abuse support organisations throughout the UK, are petitioning for the introduction of legislation to significantly improve the culture and delivery of child protection in faith settings, schools, sports organisations, the NHS, care settings, and other institutions in which children are looked after by trusted adults.

    With our superb sister petition 'Daniels Law' which has done most of the 'heavy lift' in securing signatures, we are today 2/12/15 presenting the two under the single banner Mandate Now. We have over 200,000 signatures.
    Firstly the petition is being presented at No10 at 14.30 - then later in the afternoon the Rt Hon Cheryl Gillan MP. for Chesham and Amersham who is so supportive of Mandate Now, will be presenting it on the floor of the House of Commons. Here is a link to our Press Release.
    In future please follow us on twitter @mandatenow and our website: Mandate Now
    Our petition will shortly disappear having done an excellent job.

    ^^ The above is quoted from the old petitions that you may have signed.


    Petition update
    Daniel's Law goes to UK Parliament

    Paula Barrow

    Manchester, United Kingdom

    4 Dec 2015 — On Wednesday December 2, our petition was presented in Parliament by Cheryl Gillan MP (Conservative) with the support of Sharon Hodgson MP (Labour) and Baroness Joan Walmsley (Lib Dem), in collaboration and partnership with pressure group Mandate Now.
    Thank you for your continued support as we celebrate this landmark event - the weight of our 200K+ signatures has put the call for new legislation to protect vulnerable children on the parliamentary agenda and we now move for formal debate.
    It's a slow process and we remain determined to effect this change, in Daniel's name and for other children like him who continue to suffer abuse of every kind, every day.
    Children can't stop abuse, adults can; please continue to sign to make it law for staff working with children to report suspected and known abuse.
    Backed by the largest group of survivor charities in the UK and by representatives from every major political party, we will continue to work with Mandate Now to make this change happen.

    Many thanks to everyone that signed or forwarded these petitions. ;)
