Help us Help
There are lots of ways to help those forced into rough sleeping – find out more on the Help us Help website, which I launched for local charities and the City Council last year.
Child Obesity petition
I’m backing a petition launched by a brilliant Sheffield charity SHINE, calling for proper Government funding for specialist services for severely obese children – please sign it here and share it.
City of Sanctuary
I met with Patricia Simeon, an asylum seeker whose case I took up after she was wrongly detained by the Home Office, with local campaigners at a ‘City of Sanctuary’ event in Parliament on support for asylum seekers and refugees.
As a long-term supporter of proportional representation, I was pleased to be re-elected Chair of the Labour Campaign for Electoral Reform.
Dying to work
I signed up to the ‘Dying to Work’ charter, backing the campaign for additional employment protection for terminally ill workers.
Send my Friend to School
In July school students from King Edward’s joined others from across the UK in Parliament lobbying for the ‘Send my Friend to School’ campaign. They’ve made a great video about the day – watch it here.
