I am passionate about building an inclusive community in Brixton having lived here for 30 years. I believe residents should have direct ownership and control over their housing and we must work to build mixed communities where all kinds of people share public spaces. I am now using my experience in public management, as an elected councillor and as a teacher to set up a social enterprise to give disadvantaged youngsters project based work experience, skills and social connections. I have been working with Brixton Green as a coopted Board Member since December and would love to continue.

My name is Louie, I am nineteen and I live on the St Matthews Estate in Tulse Hill Ward in Brixton. I have lived in Brixton all my life.
My generation is the one that sees no prospect of owning are own homes as things stand. Rent is through the roof which means the community where I was brought up soon won’t be an option. I welcome Brixton Green and want to see it thrive, as I think it’s members, ideas and workers are one of the best chances to fixing the housing crisis.
The crisis in London has reached a severe level and something must be done. I see Brixton Green’s vision as a credible and sustainable way forward and that is why I was keen to get involved. I also believe that those who are politically active can best serve the community by working with local partners and people.
This was an idea founded in Brixton and I care passionately about the community where I was brought up and live.
I am a member of the Labour Party in Streatham and I am the currently secretary of the Tulse Hill Branch. I was first elected to the post in March 2015 and re-elected in January 2016 and 2017, I also served as the Tulse Hill Labour Youth Officer from February 2014 to March 2015 and Campaigns Officer from January 2016 to 2017. I have campaigned with local party members, councillors and the MP on a variety of issues including housing.
