I arrived back home safely from Ukraine yesterday. I went on a humanitarian mission with @MedGlobalOrg who were supporting hospitals to prepare for the darkest days of this conflict. We worked with the most amazing people and met patients with the most heart-breaking stories.

I want to thank @michaelaj1976 at @MHMWales in #Bridgend for helping me open up about having anorexia nervosa when I was a teenager. You made me feel safe and seen and not like a freak. I wish Iโ€™d had you when I was 14. I want others to have #mentalhealth services like yours!
The Labour MS, @sarah4bridgend, has emotionally opened up in the Welsh Parliament about being โ€œdays awayโ€ from being sent to an adult psychiatric ward when she was 14yo with anorexia nervosa. โ€œYou are not alone - there is nothing wrong with you a you can get through thisโ€

Thank you to Oxford University Labour Club for having me this evening, alongside @AnnelieseDodds. Discussed many important issues including the Northern Ireland Protocol, misogyny in parliament and representation in university politics. Good luck with your exams!

Tory MPs are in dreamland if they think they can cook proper 30p meals. Once factoring in the cost of store cupboard ingredients, veg and using the hob or oven, thereโ€™s no way a healthy, nutritious meal can regularly be produced for that price. #Peston

Forget Tory MPs going for photo opportunities at foodbanks, how about they take responsibility for the high rise in Foodbank use and do something about the sky-rocketing levels of poverty across the country.

The cost of living crisis is having a damaging impact on mental health. People worried about bills, hiding stress from loved ones, not eating properly and living in cold homes. At every stage, the Govt has refused to take meaningful action. #Peston

An incredibly important article from the frontline at @EarlsfieldFood2 I know there are many families in our community who are finding it difficult to make ends meet. They will be so disappointed to hear the comments of certain Tory MPs. bigissue.com/news/social-jusโ€ฆ

Tonight, I voted for a Windfall Tax on oil and gas producers. The Tory Government voted against our proposal. At a time of rising fuel bills, this would have saved families hundreds of pounds.
