Bluebird being carried along a street by a crowdWhile we all want to see Cardiff City shoot straight back into the Premier League, we hope the Club will take the opportunity to ‘go down in a blaze of glory’ by becoming the first ‘Living Wage’ football club in the UK.

One in three women who work are low paid.

JusticeMarch1.jpgOn 1st April I took part in a rally with Justice Alliance UK and Napo, the National Union of Probation Officers, standing up to Chris Grayling's flawed justice policies. Cuts to Legal Aid are denying people access to justice and privatisation of the probation service - with companies like Sodexo, Serco and G4S running probation - will lead to job losses and will compromise public safety.
