I am standing to be selected as the Labour candidate for the parliamentary seat of Truro and Falmouth.
Standing for Parliament is difficult for many reasons, time consuming and expensive. It excludes many people. To make sure the voices of more Labour women with children are heard and represented, and to hopefully change the culture in Parliament, the MotheRed scheme has been set up to help with grant funding.
I'm really proud to be one of the first 18 women chosen to benefit under the scheme and I'll do my level best to get elected to Parliament to make real change happen.
