Shared Futures Officer | Michael Boyle | Branch: Eton & Windsor BLP | Ward: Clewer North

Michael Boyle was Labour’s candidate for the Clewer North by-election. Michael continues to live in the Clewer North ward where he was born and brought up. He attended the local first and middle schools before going on to Windsor Boys’ School. From there, Michael studied Television Production at Bournemouth University and is a film-maker by trade.

Michael has worked with children with disabilities and is presently working in retail in Windsor town centre. Following his interest in the environment, he is now writing and illustrating a children’s book on deforestation of the Amazon rainforest.

Michael also works voluntarily with people who are homeless or sleeping rough in Windsor. He helps them to find accommodation and offers support to those recently housed in the ward to “help them get back on their feet”. He recently joined the Windsor Homeless Project on their “Sleep-out”. Michael also expresses concerns over timely access to mental health support in the borough, where individuals might wait for months, and where he sees a lack of support for carers of those with mental health needs.

Michael has always been politically engaged and motivated. Though recognising the lack of housing, he is not a supporter of green belt land being used for the creation of 600 new homes, believing rather that under-utilised sites nearer town would be a better choice and would cut down on the increasing congestion and pollution on local roads. He echoes the concerns of other ward residents over the pressure on the infrastructure generally but specifically in terms of affordable public transport and health provision.

It is with issues like these, that Michael can best contribute to our constituency Labour party in his role as Shared Futures  Officer
