A survey to find out how the cost of living crisis is affecting people in Brighton Pavilion is being launched by Labour’s Purna Sen on Saturday (1st February).
The Labour Listens survey also aims to uncover the top local concerns and gives people an opportunity to get involved in the campaigns to fix them.
Purna, Labour’s General Election candidate in Brighton Pavilion, and her team say most of the surveys will be carried out door-to-door but an online version will be available soon.
Emily Thornberry, the Shadow Attorney General, will join Purna for Saturday’s launch in the Brighton Station area.
Purna said: “What matters most in politics is making sure people are heard and my survey aims to do that.
“National issues often dominate in politics but this is a chance for people to tell us what needs to change in their local area and then we will work with them to make that happen.
“I’d encourage everyone to take the time to answer the questions, and thank them in advance for participating, and if they want to join the resulting campaigns then all the better.”
Earlier in the day Purna and Emily will meet local legal professionals and representatives of voluntary agencies to hear concerns about Legal Aid policies.
