My name is Darren Parkinson and I am the prospective Green Party Candidate for Bradford West.
I live in Bradford with my partner and two children. I studied Social Policy at Hull University in the 90's and then in 2002 moved to Bradford to study Nursing at Bradford University.
After qualifying as a Learning Disability Nurse I went on to gain a job in the NHS working with Disabled Children, where I continue to work to this day.
Tackling the Climate Crisis remains the most crucial challenge of our times, a challenge that has been ignored by successive Governments. Addressing the Climate Emergency is my number one priority.
Working in the NHS, I also see first hand the impact of Tory austerity. Working for a fairer society is at the heart of what the Green Party stand for and if elected I will fight to ensure our NHS and other public services are properly funded.
As a Green MP for Bradford West I will work tirelessly to ensure that the needs of our planet and the people living on it are put first.
