A fair chance
For young people and families
• I will encourage Hampshire County Council to rethink the controversial changes to Children’s Services. Children’s Centres have been shut across the County. All Seasons in Pennington is one of them. The nearest centre is in Fawley which is not accessible to those travelling by public transport.
• I will vote against any attempt at fracking in the New Forest National Park. The Liberal Democrats have it as party policy to oppose fracking. The full repercussions of fracking on our natural landscape – including water supplies – is not known. Until we can be sure that it’s safe, we cannot risk a child’s health.
• I will argue for Child and Adult Mental Health Services in Hampshire to be fully-funded. Hampshire County Council doesn’t do enough for those who suffer from mental ill health. Appointments aren’t frequent enough and people don’t feel they are taken seriously. That has to change.
