THE MP for Bracknell has met with a group of charities to hear about local issues.

Dr Phillip Lee spent time at Involve's headquarters, in Town Square, to meet with representatives from the local Mencap, Age Concern, Youth Line, SAFE!, the Stroke Association, Pilgrim hearts, CRUSE and MAPIS.

Philip Cook, General Manager of Involve said: "Whilst generally Bracknell Forest is a clean, green, safe place to live and work there are still those that have certain challenges within the borough and there are still social issues that charities are trying to change and support people with.

"We have worked with Dr. Lee before and are delighted to see him in the area listening to grass roots organisations about local issues and challenges.”
