Conservative MP Richard Graham and Labour MP Nic Dakin have co-authored a letter to Chancellor of the Exchequer Philip Hammond seeking more funding for Further Education with the support of 165 MPs from four parties represented in Parliament.
There are many exciting local projects in Gloucester, including the Redwell Centre, Roots Cafe, the Barnwood Trust, the Friendship Cafe and more. I've worked to support these through funding bids and promoting their great work.
We’re spending more on schools than ever before and I'm working on getting more local pupils at our grammar schools and children from disadvantaged backgrounds too. Technical education is also important with over 9000 new apprentices in Gloucester since 2005.
There are new nursing assistants apprenticeships and more nursing degrees, new technology, more funding for hospitals and changes in nursing pay too. Find out more about health, social care and the NHS.
This has been one of my priorities since I became the MP for Gloucester in 2010. I've campaigned to double the maximum sentence for stalking and increase the maximum stake on gambling machines, alongside other projects.
The Gloucester Railway Station is one of the main entrances to our city, alongside our roads, roundabouts and Bus Station. There's a lot going on to improve these from a new car park and more money for potholes to additional train services.
