What I do

Clapham

The Streatham constituency contains the eastern side of Clapham across to the Common itself, including Clapham Park Estate, Lambeth Academy, and Thornton.

Clapham is a vibrant community and has undergone significant regeneration and investment in housing and on the high street in recent years. The Common remains a popular destination for tourists and locals.

I signed Early Day Motion 2522, calling for the government to commit further investment in the growth of women’s centres in the criminal justice system.

I talked to residents on the doorstep in Clapham to hear their concerns about Brexit, the Tory leadership contest, and their local issues.

I joined local Remain campaigners in Clapham to talk to local residents about the People’s Vote campaign and our commitment to Stop Brexit.

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.
