Campaigning and Voluntary Work


In addition to my professional activities, I have been involved over the years in various campaigns both local and national and have helped various voluntary bodies. I have served on the governing body of a small adult education college and was a local education authority goverenor at Chapel Allerton Primary School in Leeds for three years where I took a leading responsibility for ICT and Health and Safety.

I run a local community web site and take a proactive attitude to things that need changing in my area campaigning successfully for road calming, trying to improve road crossings for my children’s schools and bus routes in the area.

I work with local campaigners and politicians to fight to save public services and welfare from the onslaught of misguided austerity, mean-spirited reforms and cuts.
