Today I visited Glenfield Hospital to deliver my gift for an older person staying in hospital this Christmas.

Christmas can be a very lonely and difficult time for many older people, let’s help make Christmas special for them! Please donate a gift, today is the deadline so if you can, take your donations to the main receptions at Glenfield, the Royal or the General.

I am thrilled to congratulate Leicester College on being recognised as a Centre of Excellence for maths! 

The college is the only Centre of Excellence in maths in the whole of Leicestershire and only the second one in the whole of the East Midlands!

This is fantastic news and a real testament to dedication of the leadership team and teachers at the college who work so hard to support those students who are struggling to understand maths.

It is absolutely essential that young people leave education with their GCSE and a good understanding of maths if they are to succeed and continue to grow in their future careers.

This recognition will equip the college with extra resources to provide help and support to even more students, not just from the college but right across our city and the region.

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.
