As Stirling’s Member of Parliament I always took great pride in the level of support and assistance that my office gave to many people in Stirling. We helped well over 9,000 people through almost 15,000 individual cases. This page will give you information about where you can get advice and support now that a general election has been called and Stirling has no member of parliament.
For existing cases, my ability to provide support will therefore be limited by the fact that, as I am no longer an MP, I can no longer demand the direct route into the senior levels of the organisations I have been contacting on your behalf. This will be the case for all cases regarding Stirling Council, HMRC, Department of Work & Pensions, Child Maintenance Services & the Home Office.
I am not able to take new cases.
If you need urgent help, the following organisations and groups may be able to help you:
999 - dial 999 to report an emergency
101 - dial 101 to report an incident
