We are a really powerful, united team of three women keen to serve the city and the ward of Hanover & Elm Grove with Labour values. Together we want to be part of supporting the most vulnerable, fighting homelessness and child poverty and ensuring our city is place where everyone can succeed.
Cllr Emma Daniel has lead on welcoming refugees from Syria to the city, with an innovative approach ensuring that nobody already waiting for a home was pushed down the queue. This approach was pioneered here but taken up by Labour councils in London. She has passionately championed our city's progress on Trans Inclusion in the national and international media. And, has lead on ensuring that there is a package of advice, advocacy and emergency funding for those affected by welfare reform. During her time as a councillor, she fundraised for an education project and volunteered for it in the Calais Jungle and set up a coats and uniform community wardrobe for families affected by the high cost of living in the city. She is a proud trade unionist and member of GMB.
Eleanor Humphrey is a maths and science teacher. She is passionate about education and in particular, encouraging girls in STEM subjects. She lives in the ward and has campaigned for LBGT rights. She has actively campaigned in many areas for Labour candidates.
She has joined in Acorn Renters Union campaigns for residents in Hanover to support the rights of tenants to be treated fairly by lettings agencies.
