Jonathan is focused on ensuring that a world class education is provided for every child, whatever their background. On housing, he wants the focus to be on building the homes across Stoke-on-Trent North and Kidsgrove that communities need.

On healthcare, he will champion our local NHS services particularly in the area of quality mental health provision.
