Welcome to the homepage of the Gravesham Labour Party and our campaign to elect Dr Lauren Sullivan as your local champion for Gravesham

Gravesham deserves better from this Government: We need to ‘Unlock Gravesham’s Potential’ and Let’s get Britain’s future back

Gravesham deserves a better champion as your MP to tackle the cost of living crisis and the issues that matter to residents of Gravesend, Northfleet, Meopham, Vigo, Higham, Shorne, Istead Rise, Cobham, Luddesdown, Culverstone, Sole Street and all the areas in-between.

Lauren and Labour have a strong vision for all of Gravesham and ask for your support – Here are Lauren’s key pledges and policies for Gravesham

• An unrelenting focus on Jobs and the local Economy – unlocking Gravesham’s potential means an unrelenting focus on jobs and the economy looking for opportunities to attract new employers to the area, retaining our talent within the Borough, reforming business rates and local business taxation ensuring fairness for all and parity with online retailers.

• Quality Public Services, Fit for Purpose – unlocking Gravesham’s potential means that both locally and nationally our public services are fit for purpose locally this means Government should invest in our schools, our highways, our childcare and children centres, our libraries, our leisure facilities, our parks and open spaces and our transport system work for Gravesham and nationally our Government invests in our defence, our water supply, our energy security, our economy and our laws reflect the needs of the country and unlock the UK’s potential.

• Unlocking Local and Community Empowerment – unlocking Gravesham’s potential means working in partnership across Gravesham with parishes, community groups, businesses and communities on their priorities ensuring long term resourcing and the powers to do so. Our local government is also best placed to have powers and resources devolved from Government at a level that is closer to the people so that local representatives and local people can decide on the priorities of their areas.

• An NHS and Health and Social Care System that is fit for purpose – unlocking Gravesham’s potential means that we have a healthy population that can access health services when needed including GP appointments, bringing waiting lists down across the board, ensuring our social care system is fit for purpose and meets the needs of those that need it ensuring dignity and respect.

• Housing that is affordable and meets everyone’s needs – unlocking Gravesham’s potential means that we have a local housing supply mix that is truly affordable across the board for those local residents seeking to buy and rent, to ensuring that a new wave of council housing is built and not subject to right to buy unless an exact like for like is replaced.

Let's Get Britain's Future Back

Labour’s Five National Missions

“Britain needs a mission-driven government to end short term sticking-plaster politics. These five bold missions will form the backbone of Labour’s election manifesto and will drive forward a Labour government.”

Keir Starmer MP
Leader of the Labour Party

1- Get Britain building again – Good jobs and productivity growth in every part of the country making everyone, not just a few, better off.

A Labour Government will:

  • Take tough decisions to restore economic stability and secure our economy.
  • Reduce energy bills and invest in the jobs and industries of the future via our Green Prosperity Plan and Great British Energy, a new publicly owned clean generation company.
  • Build more homes and help first time buyers with ‘first dibs’ on new homes in their area.

2- Switch on Great British Energy – British people are facing challenges with higher bills and stagnant wages. The only way to cut energy bills for good and deliver energy security is to shift decisively to clean, homegrown low carbon power. Create jobs, cut bills and boost energy security with zero-carbon electricity by 2030, accelerating to net zero.

A Labour Government will:

  • Create Great British Energy, a new publicly-owned clean power generation company to cut your energy bills and deliver good jobs.
  • Cut your energy bill for good – making families up to £1,400 better off a year.
  • Create 500,000 new, skilled jobs in the industries of the future, rebuilding the strength of our industrial heartlands.
  • Deliver energy security so we’re not dependent on dictators like Putin.

3- Get the NHS back on its feet – There when people need it; with fewer lives lost to the biggest killers; in a fairer Britain, where everyone lives well for longer.

A Labour government will:

  • Cut waiting times by giving the NHS the staff and technology it needs.
  • End the 8am scramble for GP appointments and giving patients a choice of appointments in person or on the phone.
  • Improve cancer survival rates and reduce deaths from heart disease and suicide.
  • More care in the community so patients aren’t stuck in hospital.

4- Take back our streets – Labour believes that feeling secure is the bedrock on which opportunities are built, communities can thrive, and local economies can prosper. That is why Making Britain’s Streets Safe is one of the five missions that will give Britain its future back. Halve serious violent crime and raise confidence in the police and criminal justice system to its highest levels.

A Labour government will:

  • Put 13,000 more neighbourhood police and PCSOs on our streets.
  • Halve violence against women and girls, and tougher sentences for rapists.
  • Introduce new ‘Respect Orders’, a tough new order with criminal sanctions for antisocial behaviour.

5- Break down barriers to opportunity – Reform the childcare and education systems, raise standards everywhere, and prepare young people for work and life

A Labour government will:

  • Create a modern childcare system with breakfast clubs in every primary school to give children the best start.
  • Make sure there’s a world class teacher in every classroom, recruiting 6,500 new staff, paid for by ending tax breaks for private schools.
  • Introduce a broader curriculum, developing creativity, digital and speaking skills that ensure young people leave school ready for work and ready for life.
  • Expand apprenticeships and skills training to spread opportunity for all.
