Absolutely delighted to have popped into Cancer Research UK’s roadshow in Leicester City Centre recently where they were advising people on how to recognise the symptoms of cancer and what we can all do to prevent it in the first place.  

Spotting cancer early means treatment is more likely to be successful. If you’re worried about cancer then you can get more advice here: https://www.cancerresearchuk.org/

Liz Speaking at RF

On July 11th I spoke at a Resolution Foundation event on tackling the crisis in social care alongside the Liberal Democrat MP Norman Lamb and the Conservative MP Damian Green.

I argued that we must set out a bold and positive vision for social care which promotes wellbeing and connections with the wider community, which meets the needs of adults with disabilities as well as older people, and which supports unpaid family carers alongside the paid care workforce. We need a cross party consensus on how to fund this vision so that it lasts for the long term. This must be fair across the generations as well as across different income groups.

In my Leicester Mercury column this month I talk about how feelings of loneliness and isolation can have a huge impact on our mental and physical health and how taking away free TV licences for the over 75s is short-sighted and will do nothing to tackle the growing problem of loneliness.

The blame for this firmly lies with the Government and I will continue to campaign against this decision and for the investment in local services and support that make such a difference to my constituents’ lives.

Every Friday I like to get out and about speaking to local people about any issues or concerns they have. On Friday I held my latest coffee morning at the Manor House Community Centre.

Lots of residents came along and we discussed many issues including Brexit, NHS and school funding, the loss of over 75s free TV Licences crime and potholes!

If you’d like to come along to one of my coffee mornings then please do contact my office on liz.kendall.mp {at} parliament(.)uk or call 0116 204 4980
