Sam Margrave

My name is Sam Margrave. I am 35. I am currently co Vice Chair of Disability Labour. While I am not seeking re-election as Vice Chair, because I believe we need new fresh faces to fill officer roles and work together. I hope to be a strong voice for the West Midlands, and work as a member of the Executive to fight for all members across the Country, as I have tried hard to do over the last year or so.

I joined the party as a teenager and was elected as a Councillor at 21, the youngest in the Country at the time. This May I stood down, after experiencing discrimination and bullying due to my disabilities.

I want to make sure we as a Party support disabled members, and create that fair, tolerant and equal society we all joined for. In 2015, I was the only Councillor to come out in support of Jeremy Corbyn in my home CLP, that bell weather seat of Nuneaton. I spoke at his campaign event locally, and supported his re-election campaign. Whether you are a Corbynite or not, I am sure we have a lot in common.

I am currently a University lecturer and studying for a PhD in Entrepreneurship. I am also a Non-executive Director on one of the UK’s largest housing associations.

This is a critical time for our party and movement, I want to stand with others to build a party we can be proud of, that welcomes, encourages and supports disabled members. I hope I can count on your support.

I love cats, and I am autistic, have adhd, ME, EDS, dyslexia and dyspraxia. I am out and proud about disability.

Vote Sam Margrave, standing for change, offering experience.
