Copy hints and tips to encourage sharing

The Inquiry has found that people are more encouraged to share their story when particular language is used. For example, phrases that include a feeling of readiness and of taking positive action: 

  • “I want the UK to be prepared for any future pandemics.”

When it comes to talking about deadlines, using words that gives a gentle nudge works best:

  • “There is still time to share.”
  • “Share your experience today.”
  • “Don’t miss your chance to contribute.”
  • “Put your story on record today.”
