Nitesh Dave

Leicester East

Nitesh offers a chance for real change in Leicester East. He is local to the area, having been born and raised in Leicester and currently lives in the Troon area of the city with his wife Radhika and young son Krishnan.

Nitesh is a special needs teacher at a school for children with additional needs and disabilities. As a teacher he cares passionately about education and ensuring the best life outcomes for young people. He is proud of the impact the Liberal Democrat’s Pupil Premium has had in supporting the attainment of young people from disadvantaged backgrounds and of our plans to invest a further £7 billion into education. He is deeply concerned about the effect that the changes to the school funding formula will have on his students and will vigorously oppose any cuts to the education budget.

As many of Nitesh’s students have further health and care needs, he is all too aware of the negative impact that cuts to the social care budget and to personal independence plans are having on them and their families. He will campaign to ensure people with disabilities get the support they need and is encouraged by the Liberal Democrats plan to invest £6 billion into health and social care.

Nitesh has been a member of the party since 2009, has stood for election to both the city and county councils and is currently vice-chair of the Leicester Liberal Democrats. He campaigned for the UK to remain in the European Union during the referendum. Nitesh will always fight for Britain’s place in Europe, for us to continue to be a member of the Single Market and will offer you the chance to reject any Brexit deal in a referendum and instead opt to remain in the EU.
