Make sure you stay posted

Date published: 03 July 2018


The Keep Me Posted Campaign, which I chair, is celebrating its 5th birthday this month.

We have campaigned since day one on behalf of your readers, and consumers everywhere, for their right to choose, without additional financial penalty, paper bills and statements as it helps them manage their finances more easily…or indeed if they, for whatever reason, can’t go online.

A coalition of over 120 charities, trade unions and consumer groups support our campaign, many of whom will be familiar to your readers.

The bottom line is that we award the Keep Me Posted ‘Best Practice’ Mark of Distinction to organisations who promise to do the right thing by not forcing their customers online or forcing them pay to stay offline.

I would like to say ’thank you’ to your readers for their support over the last five years

If they would like to help even more could they a) write to their MP asking if he/she supports our campaign and will sign EDM 909 ‘Keep Me Posted’ and b) write to their bank, their energy supplier, their phone company and ask them if they are signed up to Keep Me Posted and, if not, why not?

And on behalf of your readers, may I wish the Keep Me Posted campaign a very happy 5th birthday!
