Steve Reed said: We have a fantastic, diverse community here in Croydon North. But we’ve been let down by a Conservative Government that’s crashed the economy and a Conservative Mayor who’s forced up council tax by 15%. Our community and our country are crying out for change – and that can only come by electing a Labour government at the next General Election.


Steven Reed is Labour MP for Croydon North and Shadow Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs. In 2018 his private member’s bill on reducing violent mental health restraint became law. In June 2019 he launched Labour’s civil society strategy outlining radical plans to empower citizens and communities.


Steve chairs the Cooperative Councils Innovation Network, co-chairs the All-Party Parliamentary Group for London, was Leader of Lambeth Council 2006-12 where he led the council’s children’s services to become best-rated in the country and pioneered the public-health approach to tackling violent youth crime. He worked in publishing for 16 years and was an elected trade union branch secretary.
