I am proud to be supporting Shahien Taj to be the next Labour candidate for PCC South Wales.
Shahien has a proven and strong record in working in strategic social partnership to deliver equality and justice.
As a campaigner against domestic violence and forced marriage, specialist advisor to government on a range of different issues and as CEO of the Henna Foundation, Shahien has a very impressive and long standing history of working with a diverse group of stakeholders including Welsh Government, Central Government, statutory services and agencies. Throughout this time she has remained connected and grounded within grassroots communities.
Such skill, knowledge and in-depth experience will undoubtedly help bring about change and improve communication and transparency between the Police and Crime Commissioner’s office, communities of South Wales and wider stakeholders. This is particularly important as we begin the journey of devolving aspects of policing and criminal justice.
