Vicky Foxcroft, MP for Lewisham Deptford, has replaced Steve Reed as Labour’s shadow charities minister.

Foxcroft, therefore, joins the shadow Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) team under Tom Watson, relinquishing her role, in turn, at the Opposition Whip’s Office.

Foxcroft was first elected in 2015, previously serving as a local councillor and working for a trade union. As an MP for Lewisham Deptford Foxcroft has particularly raised the issue of knife crime, calling for a parliamentary debate on youth violence that led to the establishment of the Youth Violence Commission, which she currently chairs.
