Better Buses for Meadowgreen Patients
It’s possible that Meadowgreen Surgery will be moving from its current sites in Greenhill and Lowedges to a new site at Jordanthorpe. If this does happen it’s absolutely essential there are adequate bus services to enable people to access appointments. Sign our petition and find out more.
Defending Victims of Rape
I’ve been supporting Sammy Woodhouse in her campaign to remove parental rights from fathers who have conceived children through rape. I’m calling on the Government to change the law and have tabled an Early Day Motion to make sure that this important issue is discussed in Parliament, with 80 MPs now signed up from every political party.

Supporting WASPI Women
As Vice Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group on State Pension Inequality for Women, I’ve consistency spoken up for the WASPI women who’ve had their state pensions delayed. The Government’s unjust decision to deprive these women of the money that they deserve leaves them significantly out of pocket and vulnerable to financial hardship. Find out more.
More Funding for SEND Children
I’ve been speaking to parents, schools, and local authorities about the lack of provision for children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND). I’ve been working locally and in Parliament to make sure that children with SEND and their families get all the support they need.
Free Travel for Young Carers
I have been campaigning for Sheffield’s 7,000 young carers to receive free bus travel, in order to allow them to access school, work, socialisation and their caring responsibilities without extra financial pressure. They give a lot to look after their loved ones, and it’s only right they receive something in return. Find out more.
Off Road Bikes
Off-road bikes and anti-social behaviour carried out using them have been a major problem in Sheffield Heeley. I’ve been working with the police and other organisations locally to tackle the criminal behaviour, and establish somewhere safe and legal for people to ride. Find out more.
Save Sheffield’s Services
Since the end of 2017 I’ve been campaigning to keep an urgent treatment centre in the City Centre, in order to keep access for people living in the South of Sheffield. I welcomed the news in September 2018 that Sheffield CCG had agreed to postpone any change to the Broad Lane Walk-In Centre and Minor Injuries Unit for two years. Find out more.
