Rosie Duffield MP
Labour MP for Canterbury
I grew up in central London but have lived and worked in Canterbury for 20 years, so I feel totally at home here. My two sons were born at the Kent & Canterbury Hospital. I’ve worked as a Teaching Assistant in local schools, and with local charities, churches, parents’ groups, arts events and schools in the area.
As a working single parent, I know the impact of drastic cuts on this area from my own experience. I really understand what life is like for those who need Tax Credits, benefits and decent housing. And I believe we should fight to make life better for our whole community, including those who fall on hard times, the homeless, refugees, people with disabilities, pensioners and families struggling to cope with the soaring cost of living.
