Today I joined the African Network Leicester at an event in Beaumont Leys where I presented some inspiring young people with an award for achieving excellence in education. This is the first time that the awards have been given and they recognised the achievements of African children from across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.  

I am extremely proud to support the African Network and the work they do in Leicester West to empower Africans and people of African heritage to their full potential.

I have long supported the GMB and TUC’s Dying to Work campaign to make sure employees with a terminal illness can’t be dismissed because of their condition.

I was proud to join MPs in Parliament to celebrate the news that over one million working people throughout the UK are now covered and protected by the Dying to Work charter, which commits employers to providing support for any workers who become terminally ill. This is a fantastic milestone in the campaign.

You can read more about the action I have taken in my constituency to encourage employers to support their terminally ill employees here and read more about the Dying to Work campaign here.

On Friday I visited Perfectly Edible’s West End café at Leicester’s West End Centre. It was fantastic to see so many people there enjoying the delicious food!

Thanks to donations from local supermarkets Gemma and the team at Perfectly Edible do an incredible job in reducing food waste and ensuring that local people can enjoy a lovely fresh meal! While there I also chatted to students from Leicester College who are taking part in some work experience. 

The café is open every Friday at Leicester Centre for Integrated Living. You can find our more here.

I was extremely proud to open the new outreach office for homelessness charity Emmaus on Hinckley Road on Friday.

Emmaus is a fantastic charity that is dedicated to giving people who have been homeless the opportunity to rebuild their lives and get back on their feet.

Their brilliant new “Brighter Futures” project is there to provide even more help for people to find work and training with personalised support and advice – from help writing CVs, confidence building, housing advice and benefits and debt advice.
