Stella Creasy MP, who has established a national reputation for her work around the issue of pay day lenders, will be speaking on a panel about local campaigning as part of a series of public debates in Queen’s Park organised by the local Labour Party.
Hampstead and Kilburn’s Labour Parliamentary candidate Tulip Siddiq will be chairing the event and said “the cost of living crisis means that more and more people are turning to pay day lenders and loan sharks. It’s essential that we work together to protect our vulnerable residents from getting trapped into a vicious cycle of debt”
Also on the panel is Jacky Peacock whose work with the Fair Credit Campaign is providing essential financial advice for those affected by the cost of living crisis and Cllr. James Denselow who is on the Brent Executive and responsible for the Council’s Brent Connects forums
Cllr Denselow explained that “more than ever local residents and businesses want an effective voice in the issues that define the spaces where they live or work. Whether it’s residents associations wanting to improve their area or community champions of causes from school improvement, the NHS or even HS2, it is vitally important for a healthy democracy to ensure that local authorities and Westminster works effectively with civil society”.
