Julie Hilling

Candidate for Bolton West

Julie worked as a youth worker for years before moving into trade union organising. Julie was born in Oxford and has lived in the Atherton for over thirty years.

Hilling launched a campaign to promote Emergency Life Skills (ELS) and pressed the Government to introduce it into the national curriculum. She linked up with Bolton Wanderers Community Trust, North West Ambulance Service as well as the British Heat Foundation to push for every school leaver in Bolton West to become trained in CPR and ELS. Throughout 2013, Hilling actively campaigned on dangerous dogs, following the death of 14-year-old constituent Jade Lomas-Anderson, in Atherton. She joined other MPs in a nationwide campaign to present a petition alongside Jade's parents to 10 Downing Street, before presenting it in the House of Commons. She also sought to make amendments to the recent Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Bill to include preventative measures such as Dog Control Notices and to control the number of dogs in a household.

In her Bolton West Constituency, Hilling lead campaigned against the Bedroom Tax and for lower Energy Bills. Since leaving Parliament she has set up a training and consultancy business.
