A fresh start for North East Somerset and Hanham

A local campaigner and a national education expert.

I know this community inside out - and have successfully fought for and delivered real change for residents, both here in our community and in Westminster.


I was born and raised here in the constituency, in the Chew Valley. I have a lifelong commitment to this community.

Voters here are my family and friends. From Hanham, to the Mendips, Longwell Green, to Whitchurch, Keynsham, Saltford and Paulton, I know these communities and I know how to win here for Labour.

I'm a highly skilled campaigner. In 2018 I lost my mum after failures in mental health care locally. I successfully fought for lessons to be learnt from her death, and for changes to mental health services to make them safer for everyone here in North East Somerset and South Gloucestershire.

I have experience working on policy at a national level. I'm a leading national education expert, and have successfully fought for policy change in Westminster - including securing support for low income children both during and after the pandemic. I currently work in a high-profile role at a national education charity.

I have a PhD in Neuroscience, and I’ve worked as an expert advisor to MPs on scientific issues in Parliament.

Make sure we have the strong candidate Labour need for North East Somerset and Hanham.
