Cllr Claire Douglas

Constituency:City of York Council
appointed to the: Council of Governors

I am a Labour Councillor in York and was elected in 2019 and represent Heworth Ward. I am Leader of the Labour Group of Councillors and am shadow spokesperson for Economy and City Development. I am also founder and Chair of Trustees of Big Futures foundation and Chair of Tang Hall Community Centre. Both roles have shown me the vital importance of good quality and accessible mental health services to support the health and wellbeing of people of all ages in our communities.

I have a strong belief in the continued drive for parity of esteem for mental and physical health services and hope to bring my particular knowledge of the challenges for children, young people and their families accessing Children and Young People’s Mental Health Services to the Council of Governors.
