My Plan

  • Securing Good Jobs & Training

    Today there are 171,000 more people in work across The East Midlands and in my constituency of Derby North the number of people claiming Jobseeker’s Allowance and Universal Credit has fallen by 1,731– a 67 per cent drop – since 2010.

  • Tackling Local Crime & Safety

    A key part of My Plan was to create a "Safer Derby" and I said that I would launch a real campaign to cut crime, helping local people feel safe on the streets and in their own homes.

  • Improve education

    Since 2010, £18.7 million has been invested by the Conservative led Government to provide more school places in our city. There has also been recent news that another school in Derby North will benefit from the Government's Priority Schools Building Programme.

  • Oppose unwanted housing developments

    A key part of My Plan to stand up for Derby North is to tackle unwanted development. I know how important it is that we build more houses, but they need to be in the right location, and it’s not appropriate where there is massive local opposition to them due to pressures on schools, local facilities, and our already stretched road network.

  • Delivering more job opportunities

    4,240 people have started apprenticeships in Derby North since 2010. With a background in manufacturing and retail I have experience in supporting the apprenticeship scheme.

  • Mental Health Awareness

    Mental Health is an issue we are often scarred to talk about, that is way I am determined to raise awareness both locally and nationally to ensure we are provide the best possible care and support so people do not have to suffer in silence

  • Improving Transport To Keep our City Moving

    Transport links are so important for local epople. Linking Derby to the rest of the country is the key to boosting our economy and creating jobs, skills and opportunities. I'll keep campaigning to improve transport links across Derby, around the Midlands, and all over the country.
