Funding must be restored to LGBT+ anti-bullying projects

Caroline Pidgeon has joined with Luisa Porritt and London Liberal Democrat council and group leads in writing to the Minister for Women and Equalities over the deeply concerning news that funding for LGBT+ anti-bullying projects has been removed.

On Anti-Bullying Week, and with homophobic abuse rising in London and across the country, this decision must be reversed!

We desperately need investment in our transport infrastructure

At the London Assembly's first ever online People's Question Time, Caroline discussed how to ensure London has world-class transport infrastructure.

We desperately need investment, particularly in our public transport and walking and cycling infrastructure. The Mayor of London must also finally cancel the £2bn polluting Silvertown Road Tunnel project under the Thames.

The Stratford-St Pancras line should be part of the zone system

Caroline Pidgeon has written to the Secretary of State for Transport asking for him to consider including the Southeastern route between Stratford International and St Pancras in the Travelcard Zoning System.

This would open up new travel routes to many in East London and reduce overcrowding, both now and as we recover from COVID-19.

Create a Sports Recovery Fund for grassroots sport

Caroline Pidgeon has written to the Mayor of London stressing the importance of London's community sports clubs, and calling for the creation of a Sports Recovery Fund.

Sport doesn't just improve physical health but can also be important for mental health too. Sports clubs and facilities will play a crucial role as we recover from COVID-19.

You can sign a petition for the creation of a Sports Recovery Fund here: https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/553619.

Sgt Ratana represented the very best of policing

In the London Assembly, Caroline spoke about the huge loss of Metropolitan Police Sergeant Matt Ratana in September, who represented the best of policing.

There were also some very special tributes from Jennette Arnold AM and Steve O’Connell AM, who had both worked with him.
