Ann Haigh is your Parliamentary Candidate for Barking
Ann Haigh was born and grew up in East London, she cares personally about the constituency and people of Barking. She began her working life at the Bank of England and then retrained as a social worker at the North East London Polytechnic. She worked first as a Local Authority Social Worker in Essex and also for the Probation Service in Barking and Dagenham.
Working principally in East London, both in the voluntary sector and as a Children's Guardian, Ann believes this experience has given her an understanding not only of the issues of the families she has worked with but also of the many challenges facing the wider community.
The growth of knife crime and its links with drug trafficking is of great concern to Ann, if elected she would bring her professional experience to work with others to offer constructive solutions to keep the streets of Barking safer.
She knows the negative impact of the lack of affordable housing is causing individuals and families in Barking. Residents have told her their voice has not been heard, their community resources are constantly under threat and they have concerns about their children’s education and elderly care and support.
Barking needs a voice that will stand up for the people in Parliament. They have been let down by Labour’s complacency and they do not want the Tories. The Liberal Democrats are the only real alternative. As a Liberal Democrat, Ann believes if the party wins the election, Brexit should be stopped - Boris Johnson’s deal will damage our economy and undermine the NHS and public services. Vital workers’ rights will be removed and environmental standards will be reduced.
If elected Ann would bring with her experience of 14 years as a District Councillor and 4 years as a County Councillor where she had a reputation for getting things done. Ann chaired and wrote a report for a Home Office Domestic Homicide Review, was a Member of the Court Rules Committee for the Adoption and Children Act and has given evidence to Select Committees of the House of Commons.
Ann would bring this experience to the service of local residents if she was elected to represent Barking in Parliament, to be your voice on the things that matter most to your lives:
- building more affordable homes
- improving the education for your children
- providing good and safe care for the elderly
- ensuring funding for your NHS
- reducing the high levels of pollution in Barking - with emergency measures to address the climate crisis affecting your health.
