This year's Conference has been a fantastic opportunity for the Labour party and important campaigns to come together and work on plans for the future.

I have had the opportunity to meet and support a number of campaigns including Trades Union Congress (TUC) with their dying to work campaign, fighting to provide rights to those with terminal illness, Respect for Animals in their mission to eradicate the fur trade, I was able to meet with The Guide Dogs for the Blind Association (UK) to hear about their training campaign and with the Fire Brigades National Union, to discuss the proper funding they desperately need to keep up their brave work.

This has been alongside a number of other meetings with Labour Students, Labour Friends of Israel, Royal College of Nursing, the remembrance of Jo Cox and more.

I look forward to meeting representatives from further campaigns, and to support them in achieving their important goals upon my return to Parliament.
