Biography

Fiona Twycross has been on the London Assembly as a Labour London-wide List member since May 2012, and was re-elected in 2016. Fiona is Deputy Leader and Economy spokesperson for the Labour Group on the Assembly.

Fiona was appointed Chair of the London Fire and Emergency Planning Authority in 2016. She is a member of the Assembly's Economy Committee and Health Committee. Prior to her election she worked for the health charity Diabetes UK. She is a Trustee of the Encephalitis Society and Trust for London.

Fiona has campaigned on the issue of Food Poverty and got Boris Johnson to agree to sign up to work towards making London a ‘Zero Hunger City’ by 2020. This followed an investigation she led on into the scale of food poverty in London on behalf of the Assembly’s Health and Environment Committee, which produced the A Zero Hunger City: Tackling Food Poverty in London report. Fiona has raised issues of low pay, particularly around the London Living Wage as well as raising the issue of child poverty in London.
