Whilst our communities rebuild from Covid-19, there are many who lost loved ones, worked in our care services and NHS whose lives will never be the same.

They need answers. @CovidJusticeUK


Many #carers struggle to access good quality and personalised respite care. With continued limited capacity post Covid, there's simply not enough respite places for those needing support.

Yet, the Government does not think it's worth collecting data to identify the problem.

I’m delighted to support @readingagency and @sciencemuseum encouraging children to sign up to the #SummerReadingChallenge. 📚 📖

'It's astonishing that in a bill that attempts to level up all parts of the UK that not once is hunger or food insecurity mentioned'

🗣️Powerful words from @EmmaLewellBuck during discussions about the Government's Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill today

Day 1 of line by line scrutiny of the #LevellingUp Bill. Disappointing that the Govt rejected all reasonable amendments that would've strengthened the Bill. #LevellingDown 😡

During today's #LevellingUp Bill Committee session, I spoke about my amendments for food insecurity to be an indicator of levelling up.

We cannot level up the country without addressing widespread food poverty in our communities.👇

Data I helped obtain for the @guardian raises severe alarm bells around incidents in private children's homes.

The government’s inaction and silence is yet another indicator of how little they care about our most vulnerable children. 👇

It’s important to honour what our forces did and do for us every single day of the year. Thank you for your service to our country. #ArmedForcesDay 🇬🇧

Great to see so many of our community groups benefiting from over £900k of @TNLComFund funding here in South Shields, including our Community Food Bus Project. #NationalLottery🚌👏🌟

My Ivan is missing and he's unwell, please please let me know if you see him. He has a tartan bow tie collar. Harbour View, River Drive area. 🤞🤞😥

Polls are open. Today is the day!

This week is #CervicalScreeningAwarenessWeek.

Cervical screening (smear tests) can save lives, but they aren't always easy for everyone, with 1 in 3 not attending when invited.

If you have any questions or concerns, @JoTrust have useful information and support. 💕💗

A good few days in #Canberra with our @CommonsDefence Committee who are now in Adelaide. With thanks to Senators David Fawcett & @JimMolan for their time & engagement, pictured here with our delegation in the Senate @Aust_Parliament
@spellar @EmmaLewellBuck @Stuart4WolvesSW

Good discussion between 🇬🇧 @CommonsDefence delegation & my 🇮🇩 colleague HE Dr Siswo Pramono & 🇲🇾 Defence Attaché to gain insights from SE Asia - important to understand how our #IndoPacific tilt & #AUKUS looks to others.

#SpeakOutAboutBullying. Nobody should have to face bullying, but sadly thousands of young people experience it every day.

We can make sure they don't face it alone.

In April, the Prime Minister promised to give #nuclear test veterans "the recognition they deserve" and earlier this month he met with campaigners.

Yet, his own Veterans Minister just last week refused to say if they deserve compensation or an apology.
@BNTVA @atomiclabrats

We hosted a parliamentary event for the #FrontOfMind campaign to inform MPs and stakeholders about changes needed in dementia policy and practice.

Has your MP signed EDM 40?

We’re urging the Government to amend legislation to allow grieving parents the right to register the death of their precious children.

@chloeandliam24t 💗💙


This #SchoolDiversityWeek is all about celebration, acceptance and respect in schools.

I'm pleased to see a record number of schools signed up to celebrate diverse families, promote kindness and tackle anti-LGBT+ bullying. @JustLikeUsUK🌈


Such sad news💔. My thoughts are with Peter's family and friends.

My constituent Masuda is raising money to help the millions of people left displaced from devastating floods in Bangladesh.👇


I stand with @RMTunion workers fighting to defend their jobs, pay and conditions.

Private profits are being preserved whilst workers face a real terms pay cut during a cost-of-living crisis. #RailStrikes

Sorry I had to miss the spectacular #ArmedForcesDay cavalcade of motorbikes and parade in Shields yesterday.

Its important to honour what our forces did and do for us every single day of the year. Thank you never seems enough.

I was on #BBCPoliticsNorth yesterday discussing the upcoming #RailStrikes.

This is about rail workers defending their jobs, pay and conditions.

The Government could prevent the strikes but they’re instead trying to divide workers and the public.

@RMTunion 🚆⬇️

North East Labour MP @EmmaLewellBuck| "stands firmly behind anyone's right to strike" -but Conservative @RichardMWCA condemns rail unions and says it's "wrong time" - watch the debate here with @BBClukewalton

Delighted to welcome the 🇬🇧 @CommonsDefence Committee to Canberra this morning. They started with a briefing at the British High Commission before going into their week’s programme here in Australia.

Lots of love to all Dad's. For those whose Dad's are no longer here, hope your memories bring you some comfort today. 💕#FathersDay

Full solidarity with today's @The_TUC #DemandBetter march calling for action on the #CostOfLivingCrisis, a new deal for working people, and a proper pay rise.

Now is a crucial time to make our voices heard, because this Government is not listening. @labourunionsuk 🌹

Happy Yellow Day to raise awareness of #CysticFibrosis💛

This #CFWeek I’m supporting the great work the @cftrust who create a brighter future for everyone with the genetic condition.

More people than ever have diabetes or at risk of type 2 diabetes.

7,500 people in South Shields are estimated to be currently living with diabetes.

It's important that if you notice any of these symptoms that you contact you GP straight away. #DiabetesWeek

This #LonelinessAwarenessWeek, I want my older constituents who are feeling lonely to know that there’s support available. @age_uk have a range of things to help...

A big helping of northern politics this weekend: Rail strikes, rural petrol prices, free school meals + rise of cashless society with @EmmaLewellBuck @RichardMWCA @NELibDems Amanda Hopgood - and @BBClukewalton in the chair - watch on Sunday BBC One 10am #bbcpoliticsnorth

My latest Gazette column👇

The Government’s long-awaited #FoodStrategy lacks concrete proposals to address hunger, along with our food supply and its sustainability.

Yet another wasted opportunity.

My constituent Mr Singh and his family have suffered at the hands of identity theft for years.

Despite written assurances from the Home Office, the UK Border Force still detained him travelling for a family holiday.

I'm glad the Prime Minister is taking responsibility👇

South Shields Labour MP @EmmaLewellBuck says a constituent had identity stolen, NHS records misused, crimes committed in his name, was told govt can't help, his family recently detained by Border Force

@BorisJohnson - "very sorry" for his experiences, govt will look at case

The SEND review missed an opportunity to embed auditory verbal therapy on the pathway for deaf children @EmmaLewellBuck adds, calling on attendees to write to @nadhimzahawi to make this happen

Congratulations to all the inspiring children who spoke at the #PowerOfSpeech today in the @HouseofCommons and challenged perceptions of what deaf children can achieve #HearUsNow @FirstVoiceAus @EmmaLewellBuck

It’s been five years since 72 people were killed in the #Grenfell disaster.

The appalling tragedy is evidence of our unequal society.

Today we remember the victims, demand justice and call for real action to raise building safety standards. 💚

Today marks 40 years since the end of the Falklands War.

We remember the 255 service personnel who made the ultimate sacrifice and all those who fought in defence of the Falklands.


An emotional and up lifting afternoon hosting @AuditoryVerbal’s #PowerofSpeech event in Parliament.

Absolutely blown away by the children’s confidence and courage to tell a room full of people their stories ⭐️🌟. #HearUsNow
