Dawn Barnes (centre) lives in Bounds Green and has worked in communications and marketing for over ten years. Her experience is diverse and she has worked in the private, public and charity sectors including for a charity working with people who misuse substances and alcohol; a local council and a sustainable design and regeneration consultancy. She currently works for a university recruiting students from a broad range of backgrounds to study a postgraduate degree in Muslim cultures and working to engage the public via lectures and events.
Dawn hails from the north of England and came to London by way of France, Japan and Oxford. She was determined to live in the city from a very young age and fell in love with London on first sight. She has been a trustee of a national charity and co-manages a network of reading groups across London.
Housing is a major concern for Dawn and the lack of affordable and decent homes for Londoners - both to rent and buy - is an issue of which she has first hand knowledge and hears about regularly on the doorsteps. Even though Dawn has yet to be elected, she successfully campaigned to bring almost 400 empty homes back into use, a project to which the former Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, granted £54m of funding.
