What I do

Brixton

The Streatham constituency contains the southern part of Brixton. It has a longstanding reputation as a vibrant cultural and creative hub, and has also seen significant transformation and investment. Windrush Square is named after the Windrush generation – who settled in Brixton after arriving in the UK as it had the labour exchange which was closest to the accommodation provided to migrants in Clapham – and is home of the Black Cultural Archives.

Finally had the chance to enjoy lunch at Bunk Burgers on Streatham High Road and meet the staff. Local businesses are what makes our community so vibrant.

Thank you to the team at Streatham Hill Sexual Health Clinic for the tour and discussion about the challenges facing the NHS and unique challenges facing sexual health services.

I stopped to talk to Yelden about the local economy and business in Streatham in ODAK Computing and Printing in Streatham Hill. A great local business active in the BID and at the heart of our community!

I visited Holy Trinity Primary school to talk to the school council about issues such as youth violence and inequality. Violence is having an impact on kids of all ages in our community.

I signed EDM 2521 condemning the Iranian government for continuing to hold Ms Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe in arbitrary detention, and expressing solidarity with the family as they continue their hunger strike.

I met with Claudine Adeyemi, founder of Career Ear, an app which connects young people with professionals to ask career-related questions.

I visited Blackbird Bakery during Streatham Food Festival to talk all things food and business with staff and try for myself some of the fantastic local food available on Streatham High Road.

I visited Wandsworth Oasis, a great local charity and shop which raises money for people living with HIV. They do great work and are a great local business!

I sat down with Year 5s at Streatham Wells school about my role as an MP and to answer their questions after meeting the Headteacher Louise.

This Refugee Week I’ve added my name to Tim Farron MP’s motion to ensure that the UK fulfils our commitment to refugee resettlement and accept more child refugees fleeing violence over the next ten years.

I challenged the Government to make the Prompt Payment Code mandatory for large businesses to help and support SMEs who are worst affected by late payments.

I asked the Government if they will rethink their proposed earnings threshold that will impact on the ability to retain and attract NHS staff.
