Biography for General Election 2017

Anita Day

Grantham and Stamford

Anita is a chartered accountant and former small business owner who lives in Swayfield in the heart of the constituency. She is currently an associate partner in a major consultancy firm, and is experienced in bringing teams together to work on complex projects - this requires energy, negotiation skills… and a sense of humour when things don't go to plan!

As a business-woman and mother, she campaigns on subjects close to her heart:

  • good quality education or work-related training for all young people, not just the privileged few;

  • well-planned, affordable housing to enable people to take their first steps on the housing ladder;

  • support for small businesses in rural towns and the countryside to help them survive imminent hikes in business rates, staff costs, and cost increases caused by the falling pound;

  • social care which provides people in need with the support they deserve, close to home.

She is also a long-time community campaigner and has been a volunteer counsellor/coach in homeless charities and foodbanks for many years. As a trustee of Grantham Foodbank, she understands how local people are struggling to make ends meet, and has been instrumental in setting up Grantham Community Money Advice, a free debt service which will open this autumn.

Another major concern are our issues around healthcare locally. As the mother of a junior doctor, she sees at first hand the strain that NHS primary care and hospital staff are under, so is campaigning to create sustainable solutions that will allow hard-pressed doctors and nurses give their patients the care they need.

Outside work, she is a member of Stamford Shoestring Theatre Company, and a keen gardener and cook, who will often be seen walking her rescue dog across the fields near her village.

Anita wants to represent the people of Grantham and Stamford to ensure that our needs are not ignored in Parliament and says:

"Politics should be about giving people opportunities- to get a good education or training; to live in a nice home and have a good job; to have access to excellent health and social care; to help people help themselves to succeed. I am personally very concerned that this government's hard Brexit stance will hurt local people, so want us to have the final say on the deal offered. But whatever the future holds, I will fight for every member of this community, and our shared values of freedom, fairness and equality."
