George Brown is our candidate for Paulsgrove Ward in the 2021 local elections.
George has a politics degree and has been a councillor on Hedge End Town Council for the past four years where he grew up prior to moving to Portsmouth.
George has been involved in several voluntary roles in the city. From the age of 14 he was involved in a number of charity fundraising events targeted at raising money for charities supporting people with learning difficulties and disadvantaged young people who were vulnerable to falling into unemployment and crime. However, more recently during the pandemic, I have been involved in community cohesion; transporting food parcels, medication and prescriptions to individuals who are unable to access council services during the pandemic. He has also regularly volunteered at a school uniform bank which provides free uniform to families who are struggling to afford new school uniforms. The clothing bank allows individuals to donate or swap items of uniform with donations being washed and quarantined by volunteers. This has saved the average family over £30.
Community development and volunteering are very important to George. By utilising his voluntary background and experience in local government, George is well placed to effectively campaign for local people to have the right provisions in place to support their communities.
