Work in thecommunity

The Council has been at the frontline in responding to the Covid19 pandemic; including distributing emergency food and medicine, providing vital social care, running testing centres and now rolling out the vaccine.


Throughout 2020 it has had a huge impact on the way that the Council and Councillors work. Instead of attending meetings on your behalf at Oldham Civic Centre, all meetings have been held virtually. I have attended all full council meetings and have continued to undertake training on casework and advocacy skills using this technology so that I can continue to represent you throughout this difficult time.


In my ward I have had to scale back the amount of work I can do in the community due to not being able to get out and about, but I have still been available by e-mail or telephone for people to contact me if they have problems they would like my assistance with. I have supported individual residents on a range of welfare issues, including housing, access to benefits, school placements and I have continued to find new ways of working to keep the ward clean and tidy.


I am a Governor at the Radclyffe School and have worked closely with residents and my Ward colleagues to establish the Community Benefit Society.


I have kept in touch with local community groups and have continued to work with them to help them access the grants system to fund activities and I look forward to becoming more active in the area again when restrictions are finally lifted.
