Community Project Funding Information

I have put together a list of organisations – both national and local – that provide grants and general financial support to all sorts of projects in the community. If you have any suggestions for organisations that I have missed please let me know and I’ll update the list!

Animal Welfare & the Environment

Action we have taken

Since the General Election, Conservatives in Government have been actively working to improve animal welfare. We have taken action to:

ban the plastic microbeads which do so much damage to marine wildlife

Schools Funding

We all know that schools in West Sussex receive less funding than other areas in the country, which has resulted in school budgets being strained and savings having to be found. 

Brexit

The events immediately following the result of the EU referendum were momentous and will shape the future of our country for years to come.

1001 Critical Days

There is a growing acknowledgement that those first early years of a child’s life are absolutely crucial. Getting it right as parents with professional help and public resource to support where needed has the potential to make a huge difference to how that child will grow into an adult contributing to society.

A27 Improvements

The objective of the A27 Working Group is to demonstrate to the Government the overwhelming economic, environmental and social case for improving the A27 across West Sussex.

Trainwatch

On this section of my website, I post regular updates on our train service, my latest videos on the issue, as well as letters to and from government ministers. If you have questions on what you see here please do get in touch.

Women State Pension Inequality

Changes that came in a number of years ago are impacting on women born in the 1950s and are seeing their pensionable age rise from 60 to 66. I have had a number of representations from constituents and I think the changes are unfair. Whilst I am supportive of equalising the pensionable age between men and women, what I think has been missed here is that these women have been given very little notice of when these changes were coming in, in some cases just 18 months. This gave them very little time to make other previsions.
