Covid-19 Support and guidance

Londoners have paid a heavy price because of Covid-19 – which will continue to impact our economy and communities for many years to come.

The Government has a historic responsibility to rebuild a better, fairer and greener country after this virus. Nobody should be left permanently unemployed, homeless or pushed into poverty as a result of it. London needs a 1945-style recovery plan. This means focusing relentlessly on jobs, jobs, jobs. This will enable us to narrow the social, economic and health inequalities in our city.

We need investment to support existing jobs and create new ones. We need to invest in skills, training and new infrastructure. And we need to invest in public services to help Londoners when they need it most. to invest in public services to help Londoners when they need it most.

As your Assembly Member, I’m here to support you during this difficult time. whilst I can’t hold individual advice surgeries or attend events across Merton and Wandsworth, you can contact my office by email with any concerns about your own situation, or about the government’s approach to Covid-19.
