I grew up on a council estate - which was not without its challenges. Throughout my life my Mum struggled with mental health problems and life for me, my brother and sister wasn’t the easiest. For the most part, I was raised by my Grandma who worked at three jobs to put food on the table and didn't stop until the day she died — three days before her 65th birthday.
Growing up in those circumstances has shaped who I am and what I believe.
I was proud to be the MP for Ashton between 2015-2017 and I ask for your vote so I can continue working hard for you in Parliament.
