The Women's Equality Party has announced local activist and town Councillor Kay Wesley will be standing for Congleton in the 2024 General Election.

Kay was elected as the Women's Equality Party's first Councillor in 2019 and was re-elected in 2023.

In her time as a local councillor, Kay has a track record of working collaboratively across the board to end violence against women and girls.

She joined the community safety charter, helping launch a domestic abuse clinic in Congleton and working with Cheshire Police to challenge hate crime and make our streets safer.

Kay has made better childcare, community inclusion and improved access for disabled people priorities, campaigned for better public transport, led on Congleton's declaration of climate emergency and initiated numerous sustainability projects.

Women's Equality party candidate, Kay Wesley, said: "I am proud to be standing for the Women's Equality Party in Congleton, and I would be honoured to represent our community in Parliament. 

"Over the last 14 years the Conservatives have paved a path of destruction, bulldozing through our NHS, cutting gaping holes in our local services and driving policies that mean a third of children are now growing up in poverty.

"We are facing crises on all fronts, from the changing climate to broken services to escalating violence against women and girls. Congleton deserves better.

"It is simply not true that we can't afford to fix the services we all rely on.

"In fact, we can't afford not to. Voters are tired of the same old party politics.

"We need big, bold ideas to deliver the kind of change we need to reverse the decline.

"This is a moment for political courage, and I am brave enough to tackle poverty, put the needs of the people first and invest in a truly transformational, new deal for care."
