Emmerson Walgrove 200x300
Bradford West

I have been involved with the Bradford District Care NHS Foundation Trust (BDCFT) as an involvement Partner for more than 15 years and sit on the Ligature Environment Risk and Safety (LERS) Group, the Care Trust Way Guiding Group and take part in the Patient-Led Assessments of the Care Environment (PLACE).

I attend BDCFT Trust Wide Involvement Group (TWIG) and have ongoing depression myself.  I was Chair of Bradford District Care Patient & Public Involvement Forums until 2006 and Chair of Bradford Disabled People’s Forum until 2021 

I am a Director/ Trustee of Bradford Cyrenians, which was formed in 1972 in direct response to the lack of services for homeless people, including a growing concern around rough sleeping in the Bradford district. It is our aim to provide flexible, preventative support services to vulnerable communities who present with a wide range of multiple and complex health issues including mental health.

I am a Director/Trustee of Sight Airedale, which is a local independent sight loss charity supporting people who live in the Airedale area (Barnoldswick, Bingley, Cross Hills, Ilkley, Keighley, Settle, Silsden, Skipton). Who help anyone who is (or is eligible to be) registered Blind or Partially sighted or anyone who has a sight problem that means they are unable to read text at N12 size even if they are wearing glasses.

I have a proven history of representing service users / carers, and feeding information back to them, and I would represent Bradford West to the best of my ability.
