Liz Jarvis has worked closely with the Southampton cruise industry for the past seven years. She joined the Lib Dems in August 2018 after becoming increasingly disillusioned with Jeremy Corbyn's Labour. An experienced campaigner and journalist, and a mum, she is also a trustee for a charity that works with parents, many coping with challenging circumstances. Liz has direct experience of dealing with the effects of Alzheimer's on the elderly and the difficulties of finding suitable care, and is determined to fight for better mental health provision for young people and against cuts to the NHS. She is passionate about Lib Dem policies on education, the climate emergency, demanding better for our communities, and of course remaining in the EU, and is very concerned about the impact of any Brexit on the Southampton economy and jobs in the area, as well as the travel industry.
