Since January 1st, my team has dealt with more than 250 pieces of new casework - up 25% compared to the same timeframe last year.
As you can imagine the Cost of Living and the government's attack on the right to strike have been pretty high on the agenda, but we are also seeing lots of issues with Immigration (with one constituent still waiting on an initial asylum application interview after almost three years!), and pensions - particularly from those who have deferred their state pension. The WordCloud below highlights the range of topics we have been contacted about.
As always, if there's anything my team and I can help with, we are on hand. Please use the contact information at the bottom of this update should you need to get in touch.
