RI completed my MSc in Research for Public Policy and Practice from UCL, specialising in autism research. I am now a Research Assistant for the York Food Poverty Alliance and am setting up a pay-as-you-feel cafe, The Real Junk Food Project: York.

Professionally, I have been an education and disability practitioner in Manchester, Jersey and currently at Yorkshire universities. Since coming to York in 2015 I have also worked for Barnardo’s in West Yorkshire and QA Research in York.

I completed one year as voluntary Projects Officer for the York Bus Forum, and is a regular activist for campaigns such as anti-fracking and YorSpace housing and have served some time as Yorkshire & Humber’s regional representative on Green Party Regional Committee (one of the national committees that run the Green Party or England and Wales).//Whilst living in Jersey I was secretary of the Reform Jersey Party, and political assistant to one of their elected members, which is where my interest in local party politics and campaigning for a more equal society really began. Now for the Greens, my role involves contributing to policy matters (children’s services, education, housing), and I work in the local party office assisting with casework, campaigns, planning events and coordinating volunteers.

I have a 7-year old son – a Green Party activist in the making! – meaning family-friendly events and meetings are really important. Last but not least, I won over 1500 votes in the Micklegate by-election in June 2017, coming 2nd at the ballot-box.

I've pledged my support for @trjfproject #zerowaste #notolandfill – have you? Check it out #reuse #recycle #community #communitycafe #waronwaste

We’re shocked & saddened to report that one of our vans was stolen from the Hospice car park last night. This has been reported to the police. The van is a Ford Transit, reg YE62 OOC. If you have any information, please call 101 and quote the incident number: NYP11062019-0087.

Any new roads in York must be offset with equal or better #publictransport, @YorkCycle provision AND bolder #GHG emission reductions sector-wide

Just ten years after #Yorkshire returned a BNP MEP - Yorkshire now elected a black Muslim refugee. A good time to be in Scarborough says @jon_bartley co-leader @TheGreenParty #gpconf

Great panel discussion on the #GreenNewDeal at #gpconf with @CarolineLucas @fortuashla from @wemoveEU, Andrew Pendleton from @NEF & @AnnaVickerstaff from @350 @TheGreenParty
