Thriving local communities have much better outcomes on a number of fronts, including health and mental well-being. Much of my career before standing to be your MP was spent working in the local voluntary sector and I aim to ensure that social isolation is something that remains in the forefront of everyone’s minds. I have developed a number of initiatives that help vulnerable adults become more independent, giving them the opportunity to gain skills enabling them to secure long-term employment. Supporting local communities is deeply important to me personally and is one of my priorities as your MP.
