Communities: Supporting Local Gloucester Projects

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.

Education and Skills: Funding, Apprentices and Grammars

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.

Environment and Animal Welfare

From ivory to recycling, bees to renewables, there is plenty going on to support our animals and environment and I'm involved in several campaigns to help improve welfare and protect the planet.

Homelessness and Rough Sleeping

What is happening in Gloucester to help people who are rough sleeping and homeless? There are local and national projects including a Social Impact Bond for P3 and the George Whitfield Centre.

Transport: Gloucester Railway Station and roads

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.
