As a mother who is disabled and a part time wheelchair user, I am passionate about creating a world that is accessible to all and where everyone can contribute. I want us to live in, and for our children to grow up in, a community that values diversity and where there are resources “for the many not the few”.
I was born in London, educated in Wiltshire, studied and worked in London, and have a wealth of life experiences that inspire me to want to change things for the better. Disabled persons are infinitely resourceful, since leaving London to live in Trowbridge I have started my own business designing and making clothes for children. I volunteer in our community as a breastfeeding peer supporter, providing practical and emotional support to local mums.
Austerity has caused extraordinary damage to our wonderful community, and it is time for Real Change. I joined the Labour Party after the 2016 referendum as I was appalled at the prospect of a hard Brexit. I am standing as your Labour candidate in the most significant general election since 1945 as only a Labour government can address the many inequalities in education, health care, social welfare and housing.
We're a people-powered movement.
Be a part of it.
