Yesterday I joined Emma Saunders, the East Midlands representative of the Labour Campaign for Council Housing, and a local Labour Party member, in Parliament.

The Labour Campaign for Council Housing are calling for Labour’s next manifesto to include 155,000 social rented homes a year, with at least 100,000 of these being council homes. I strongly support their call to build more social rented and council homes.

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

I am extremely proud to have signed Leicester’s Homelessness Charter. 

The Charter brings together organisations from right across the city, including charities, businesses, the City Council, health services, the police and faith groups, to commit to work together to tackle homelessness. 

The number of people sleeping rough in our city has doubled since 2010. But that only tells half the story. People can find themselves homeless if they have no where to stay and that also includes people who are sleeping on a friend’s sofa, people who are staying in a hostel and people who have become homeless because of abuse of violence. 

No one should be sleeping rough on our streets or have no where to call home. By working together we can ensure that we prevent homelessness in our city. 

You can find out more about the charter here.

I was a guest on the Progressive Britain podcast, where I joined Alison McGovern MP to discuss the serious issue of wealth inequality.

Wealth inequality is twice as great as income inequality. The wealthiest 10% of households own 45% of nation’s wealth, while the least wealthy half of households own just 9%. This is unjust, unfair and holds our country back.
