We are expecting a fantastic line-up of contributors and have confirmed the following speakers:
Lisa Nandy MP, Shadow Minister for Civil Society – Lisa was appointed Shadow Minister for Civil Society in October 2013 and is one of just six Asian female MPs, representing Wigan since May 2010. She was on the Education Select Committee from 2010-12, before becoming a shadow junior education minister in 2013. Lisa was Treasurer of the APPG on Youth Affairs from 2011-13. Before entering Parliament she worked for national children’s charity The Children’s Society.
Lucy-Anne Holmes, Founder No More Page Three – Lucy founded the campaigning group calling for an end to The Sun’s running of a topless photo 2 years ago and has so far gathered over 200,000 supportive signatures.
We also expect that the new Minister for Civil Society, Rob Wilson MP, will honour the commitment of his predecessor and speak at the conference.
