Campaigning

Making even more brilliant beginnings

CampaigningBrilliant Beginnings campaigns for families created through surrogacy.  Our non-profit objectives include raising awareness, promoting understanding, and working to improve the experience of surrogacy for UK families.

What we do

Some of our campaigning work has a prominent face.  You will see us championing surrogacy and modern families in the media, and at public events and debates.  We work hard to help people understand that surrogacy arrangements work positively where they are handled ethically, legally and responsibly.

Some of our campaigning work is less visible, but no less important.  We work to effect change behind the scenes, and to influence policy and law wherever we can, including in Parliament, with the Department of Health and with other influencers and lobby groups.  We are members of the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority's National Donation Strategy Group, and we support leading charities and non-profit organisations including Surrogacy UK, the Donor Conception Network, Fertility Network UK and Stonewall as well as other organisations such as Pride Angel and Fertility Friends. 

How can you help?

We need as much help as we can get, and here is what you can do:

  • Help us spread the word on Twitter and Facebook – keep an eye out for campaigns and petitions.
  • Tell us about your experience – we always need case studies, whether you are willing to share your story publicly or to help support policy decisions privately.
  • Write to your local MP to tell them about your experiences and why legal reform is so desperately needed.
  • Help to raise awareness and support our campaign by signing our petition to the UK Government.
