Emma is the co-lead, alongside Justine Greening, on More United’s campaign on homelessness. This is an issue she cares about deeply, having written in the Mirror about her experience of statutory homelessness as a child. She also helped secure the debate on the impact of Brexit on the NHS and supported More United’s calls for MP proxy voting by making an impassioned speech in Parliament. More United supporters backed her during the 2017 election.
