What I do

Streatham

Streatham is where I grew up, and is a vibrant, diverse, and growing community. It is tied together by Streatham High Road, an important business hub and Europe’s longest High Street. Streatham has benefited from its diversity with a growing cultural scene including film, food, and arts festivals supported by the inStreatham business improvement district.

I visited Perfect Blend in Streatham Hill to discuss the local economy and health of the High Road with manager Ben. One of our many great small businesses on the High Road.

I voted for a motion to take over the Order Paper to prevent a future Conservative PM from forcing through a No Deal Brexit against Parliament’s will, which was unfortunately defeated.

Visiting Streatham’s newest addition to the High Street, Tribe! A brand new vegan cafe, juice bar and co-working space right next to Streatham Hill station. Check them out!

Dropped in on The Filling Station for my morning coffee, another great local business on Streatham High Road and a favourite of mine!.

I signed EDM 2285 calling for a new Mental Health Bill to tackle the needs of children with mental health needs.

Following the huge number of EU Citizens who were denied their right to vote on polling day, I have written to the Cabinet Office calling on government to take responsibility and set out plans to prevent it ever happening again.

I visited Woodmansterne school and children’s centre to talk to students about politics, and take a tour of the great new buildings and facilities for pupils.

On Mental Health Week, I have tabled a series of questions to ask government what it is doing to safeguard the mental health of visa applicants, civil servants, and school children.

I have written to Ministers following the publication of the APPG for Social Integration’s interim report on healing the generational divide, calling on government to participate in the inquiry and act to build bridges between the generations.

The All Party Parliamentary Group on Social Integration, which I chair, launched its interim report on how we heal the generational divide and tackle polarisation and loneliness.

I support the Mental Health Foundation’s work on Mental Health Week. The theme this year is #BeBodyKind encouraging us all to think about body image issues and how they effect our mental wellbeing.

I signed EDM 2328 calling for the UK Government to adopt the Council of Europe’s Istanbul convention on violence against women and domestic violence. More must be done to protect victims.
