Section 3: Community Involvement
I volunteer with several community groups including H.E.L.P and the BIGLOCALDY10, but also groups that benefit not only my area but Wyre Forest as a whole. I regularly attend local community group meetings such as Horsefair and Proud, Friends of Broadwaters, Friends of St Georges and Friends of Springfield and assist them wherever I can.

Section 4: Assisting Constituents
I regularly assist residents with all kinds of issues mainly housing or a.s.b issues. I send leaflets out and engage with residents via email and social media on a daily basis. My contact information is widely available and utilised.

Section 5: Supplementary Information
My volunteering back ground gives me a great insight into how communities really work, from the grass roots up. I feel privileged to be able to represent the area in which I live and Wyre forest as a whole.
