Neil Coyle

MP for Bermondsey and Old Southwark


Neil is a councillor in the constituency, serving the Newington ward since 2010. Neil has helped establish several local community organisations, including the Walworth Society and tenants' associations, to provide greater local voice.

Neil is a trustee for a local mental health charity and the North Southwark Environment Trust, helping fund projects which provide environmental or green educational benefits. Neil has helped fundraise for the Evelina Children's Hospital and for a local Garden Farm.

Neil is a national policy and campaigns advisor on social care and tackling poverty. Neil has run a national charity helping half a million people a year. Neil served as Southwark's welfare lead to ensure disabled people and carers were better protected from cuts imposed by the Coalition and worked with community organisations like Citizens Advice Bureaux to support local people affected by measures the local Lib Dem MP voted for in Parliament.

Neil believes that whilst Simon Hughes used to have a reputation for being a 'casework MP' his votes for the Tory-led Government have harmed Bermondsey and Old Southwark deeply - leaving the constituency with fewer police and firefighters, a damaged NHS and cuts to people on low incomes. Hughes has cut funding to the borough by £250 per person and reduced funding to build genuinely affordable homes.
