Theo Sergiou, 19, was diagnosed with eye cancer aged two and, aged four, was told it was terminal. But the tumours stopped growing and although he remains partially sighted, Theo survived. A UK Youth Parliament representative, the Enfield teenager is committed to community work such as tackling knife crime. During the pandemic, Theo has written to the prime minister about the lack of provision for children with special educational needs, who he says are suffering mental health problems and not getting an education.

Feryal Clark is the MP for Enfield North and has become an active engager with local communities. A new Climate and Ecological Emergency Bill (CEE Bill) demanding the UK government act with emergency measures on the crisis facing us may be placed before Parliament in the Autumn. This potential new bill would substantially amend the Climate Change Act 2008. We will ask Feryal to speak on this and whether she supports it.
