I was born in Barrow-in-Furness where I attended state schools before moving to Lancaster as a teenager. Before being elected as an MP I worked for a national social work organisation and was a trustee for a local charity supporting victims of domestic violence.
I was first elected as the Member of Parliament for Lancaster and Fleetwood in May 2015, winning the seat from the Conservative Party. One the first things I did was set up an office in the constituency which was something our area had not had from the previous MP. My staffed office helps support thousands of constituents every year.
I have spent recent times campaigning against the austerity measures imposed by the Conservative Government – measures which have seen the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. As an MP who speaks regularly on climate change issues, I have fought against fracking at Preston New Road and the development of the huge gas storage facility at Preesall.
