I’m head of campaigns, communications and digital for the TUC. I used to work for campaigning charities including Shelter, Oxfam and the innovative domestic abuse charity SafeLives.
I’m interested in the world of work, housing, women, poverty and welfare. I am a trustee of the Nationwide Foundation and a past trustee of Fawcett.
I used to be a Labour councillor in Oxford 2006-2013. I was Labour’s parliamentary candidate for Oxford West in 2005. I’m still Labour.
I grew up in Croydon, and have also lived in Oxford and Bermondsey. Now I live in Bexley, in south-east London, with my girlfriend, our daughter, and our cat.
