Karen McGowan grew up in Birley and attended the local primary and secondary schools. She works part-time for The University of Sheffield and has been a member of Unison since 1984.  Karen is proud to have served as a governor at Birley Learning Community and on the Birley Health Centre Patient Focus Group since 2000.


She was elected as a Labour Councillor for the Birley ward in 2010 and since this time she has worked with local community groups and supported individual residents with their issues. Karen is all too aware of the effect the Tory cuts are having on the low paid, elderly, children and families.


Working together as a community and with the various Friends groups, the Frecheville and Gleadless Library Groups, Tenants & Residents Associations and others is the only way to ensure community services continue to be provided and that we all have neighbourhoods to be proud of. Karen will continue to provide a strong voice for Birley Ward and to do as much as she can to help support residents with their issues as well as work with the local community groups.
