Uma Kumaran is Labour's Candidate for Harrow East
I’m proud to live in Harrow, it’s the place I love and home to the people I care about.
With a decade of experience campaigning on issues that have affected our community, I understand what it takes to deliver a real change for the better. I work for a pioneering inner city Council helping deliver affordable homes for thousands of Londoners, making a real difference to everyday lives.
Here in Harrow, I volunteer as a radio presenter in Northwick Park Hospital - It’s just one small way I can say thank you to the wonderful staff at the A&E department who saved my dad’s life, like it has done for so many others in our community.
Having studied in local schools – Newton Farm Primary, then Bentley Wood Girl’s School and finally St Dominic’s Sixth Form, I now sit as school governor at a local infant and nursery in our Borough. I’m grateful for the start in life the education I received in Harrow gave me.
