Over the last few days I have been working with my team to ensure that my office will remain open to you for advice, support and sign-posting to key local services. I will update this page with useful information and links, as more information comes out from central government.

Unfortunately, I am no longer able to take part in face-to-face advice surgeries. However, I am keen to hear from constituents about the challenges you face due to COVID-19 and we have already fielded a significant amount of calls and emails from individuals, families, public servants and employers, who are trying their best to keep going.

Please note, while my office is still functioning, I will be prioritising casework on the basis of need over the coming weeks and months. Casework that is not deemed to be urgent will be responded to at a later date.

You can still contact me and my team by telephone on 0191 414 2488 or by email on liz.twist.mp@parliament.uk.

We face a difficult time, but we can overcome it by working together.

Best wishes,
