Signing the Petition as a Group
It’s easy for people to miss an email or forget to sign.
Because this petition is finishing on the 29th of April – very soon – we are asking groups to please set aside a few minutes during or after a meeting to sign the petition then and there. People could use their phones and/or printed petition forms.
Petition forms need to be sent by overnight courier – not post – to arrive at the Care Alliance by Wednesday 24 April.
If you have any questions, support is available at 0800 42 76 42, 7 days per week and also on public holidays.
- A slot to enable petitions to get to Wellington by Wednesday 24 April. (The online version will be available until 29 April.)
- Someone to announce the petition. See our suggested script.
- Someone to prepare materials and get petition forms couriered afterwards. Contact us if you would like costs reimbursed.
- Two or more helpers to hand out forms on clipboards and collect them afterwards. Alternatively helpers could remind people to sign before they leave and direct them to a table with petition forms.
Videos to show during the signing session (optional)
