My work on Culture

Launching Southampton's City of Culture 2025 bid with Tyrone, Zoie Golding, Shelina Permalloo, Claire Whittaker and Warbz

I grew up believing the world of art and culture wasn’t for people like me.

It was only after taking on the Culture portfolio, in my former role as Cabinet Member for Homes and Culture at Southampton City Council, that I realised I had grown up with so much culture, but had just not defined it as such. I want to ensure that everyone’s culture is valued, celebrated and brings people together.

My work on Housing

When I was the Cabinet Member for Homes and Culture, my portfolio included everything from homelessness, council and social housing, to the private rented sector in Southampton.

Homes are more than bricks and mortar. Homes are about the people that live in them, their quality of life, and the sense of community and stability that high quality housing creates. Whether you rent or own, all homes need to be safe, secure, and affordable to live in.
