Rebecca both lives and works in Bolton, where family on her mother’s side have lived for several generations. Rebecca loves the different and distinct communities of Bolton and wants to play her part in promoting community cohesion for the benefit of all. Providing access to services and opportunities that will allow all residents to flourish, in whatever area of Bolton West constituency they live, is her priority.
Rebecca is active in her local community and currently volunteers with a Rainbows group; she supports local initiatives as well as working on campaigns to tackle local Council waste and improving access to mental health services.
As a teacher in Bolton, Rebecca has contact with a wide range of families within the community, and wants to be a voice for all those who may not feel listened to by the current political system. It was for this reason Rebecca joined the party in June 2016 and has taken an active role ever since.
Having a background in both psychology and science, Rebecca is well placed to see how evidence based policies would benefit political policy; in particular, her experience in the education sector has allowed her to witness first-hand the ill effects of both education cuts and selective education. With her prior experiences in other sectors, including both the NHS and Legal sector, Rebecca would be a strong voice for genuine change on behalf of the people of Bolton West.
