About Hina Bokhari
Proud & passionate local campaigner
I grew up in London where my father was a pioneering and inspirational headteacher, who was a campaigner for social justice. Above all else, he taught me the true value of education in unlocking opportunity for everyone and the need for everyone to have access to good local social services.
My husband Martin and our two children were born in St Helier Hospital and our young children will be going to schools in Sutton.
Teacher and charity founder
My passion and vocation as a teacher. My grandfather was a headteacher, my father was a headteacher and my husband Martin is a teacher. As a former supply teacher in Sutton, teaching in Manor Park, Green Wrythe Primary and The Avenue, I understand the challenges and needs of the local families. But like many teachers I saw that too many children are still left behind by our system, so I founded an educational charity, which has helped over 40,000 disadvantaged young people.
Trusted local grassroots campaigner and councillor
But with everything I have done I knew it was still not enough as I saw opportunities for young people too often being undermined by failing services or failing politicians I used my grassroots campaigning skills to become a councillor to fight for fair funding for schools. But I know this is still not enough to make the changes we need to see for our families in Sutton and Cheam and that is why I am running to become your next Member of Parliament.
AS OUR MEMBER OF PARLIAMENT, HINA WILL:
Put Sutton, Cheam & Worcester Park First
Save our NHS from a Trump Trade deal
Fight for Fair Funding for all local schools
Campaign for local Police resources
