AEP Manifesto: 2024


We want to ensure that the next government prioritise children and young people, and acknowledge the role of EPs in schools and communities.

The General Election on Thursday 4th July 2024 presents an opportunity for change. As political parties launch their manifestos, this is a crucial moment to promote the AEP's key issues widely - for the future of EPs, for services and for the communities we serve.

We've written to all PCCs with our manifesto for England, Wales, Scotland & Northern Ireland to let them know what issues are most important to members and the key changes we need in the education system and the workforce. You can use our member toolkit to send your own letter or email, too!


Get involved!


Members - your voice is crucial in spreading the word and sharing the priorities of EPs.

  • Register to vote by 18 June! And make sure others do too - a simple step to have voices heard.
  • Contact your local candidates! Ask them to support the AEP’s calls for action - help to spread the message to the new intake of Members of Parliament.
  • We’ve created this toolkit to support you to engage with PPCs, including a template email to edit and sendadvice on setting up a meeting with local candidates and a template press release and letter to the editor to publicise your meeting in the local press. 
  • Educate others about the work of EPs and their vital role in ensuring children and young people can thrive - that is why it's so important that the incoming government listen to EPs and invest in the current and future workforce.
  • Share our priorities widely on social media, tagging @AEPsychologists and using our hashtag #AEPManifesto24. Use your workplace and your own networks to spread the word!
