Liz backs local efforts

On Friday I had a busy day chairing Feeding Leicester, a group trying to eradicate food poverty in the city, discussed the ground-breaking work TUC Midlands have been doing to tackle worker exploitation in Leicester’s textile industry, and spoke with Cllr Sarah Russell and Cllr Elly Cutkelvin on concerns with social care and housing.

There is an amazing local effort to solve these problems, but we also desperately need a government that backs us.
