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.

In my latest Leicester Mercury column I argue that whilst I welcome measures announced in the draft Domestic Abuse Bill, on their own I don’t believe they are enough.  I believe guaranteed long term funding is vital in ensuring every woman who has suffered from violence or abuse gets the help they need to re-build their and their family’s lives.

On Friday I visited Belgrave St Peter’s Primary School where I chatted to year 5 and 6 students ahead of their Aspirations Week. 

The students asked me some fantastic questions on what it’s like to be an MP and what I wanted to be when I was younger. I told them that sometimes I still get nervous speaking in Parliament and they told me about all the times when they feel nervous and how they overcome their nerves.

Thank you to Brendan Daly for organising a discussion today on veterans mental health. 

This is a huge issue, and although there has been some progress, much more needs to be done to support those who’ve given so much for our country.

If you’re a veteran and you need someone to talk to, please ensure you get help as soon as possible. If you don’t know where to turn to then please get in touch with my office and we’ll do everything we can to help.
