There is also a page where constituents can write directly to her, asking for help or to voice concerns over a particular issue.

On the launch Angela said, “I find the internet to be a tremendous source of information and communication. I want to be able to offer constituents an information service about my work as their MP; I believe this new website offers this.
The internet is now a popular way in which many people get their news and information. It was always a priority of mine to be able to offer this sort of service to the people of Hillsborough. However, it was important that this was done in a way which follows the latest accessibility guidelines; I am pleased this new site meets the industry standard WC3 for compliance and accessibility.
I would like to encourage people in the constituency to make use of this new medium to keep up to date with what I am doing as their MP and to use it to contact me.”
