Siobhain McDonagh MP


I was born on 20th February 1960 to Irish parents living in the constituency I'm now representing in Parliament, Mitcham and Morden. I'm proud to be a lifelong resident of the constituency, with over 25 years of community activism in the area.

After attending schools in Tooting and New Malden I studied politics at Essex University, and then went out to work, first as a Clerical Officer at the DHSS in Balham and then as a benefit adviser for the Homeless Families Unit of Wandsworth Council. I later worked as a development manager for Battersea Churches Housing Trust and became active in the field of welfare advice.

In 1982 I became the youngest councillor in London when I was elected to Merton Council in Colliers Wood ward, where I live.
