Lorraine Harding

I am a single parent who lives with a number of hidden disabilities.

I am currently unemployed and am on ESA. Before being unable to work I have worked in catering, retail, a library assistant, the civil service, call centres and as a community care worker. Through out my working life I have always been an active union member and have been involved in many different roles, from being a shop steward, to branch secretary, to an equalities officer.

I have a wide range of skills which include, but not limited to: arranging conferences, working in and managing a diverse team, production of written reports, minute secretary and campaigns organiser. I can work collaboratively and independently. I can and do consult and listen to others but will make a hard decision if needed.

I joined the Labour Party two years ago and since then I have been active within my branch and CLP. I was re-elected (unopposed) as the equalities officer this year. I have been elected as a delegate to 2018 conference.

I am a member of Unite.

I seek your support for this election and for the other candidates on the DEAL platform.
