Father to two grown-up daughters and grandad to a four-year old grandson, Kieran has lived in Kent all his life – Dover, Hythe, and now Faversham.
Kieran’s career has seen him work in the public and private sectors; he is currently working as a Trade Union professional for the Communication Workers Union. He is also a trained therapeutic counsellor.
Active in the Faversham community, Kieran volunteers at Faversham Foodbank. He is a member of several local organisations, including Faversham Society which supports the recognition of the town’s history, and Faversham Community Land Trust, established in response to the lack of affordable housing in the town.
He is particularly concerned about the impact of cost-of-living pressures and its significant impact on people’s physical and mental health. “I believe it is vitally important that local Councils offer support to communities by listening and highlighting what support services are available for them to access”.
When not working, Kieran enjoys going to the cinema; he is a member of Faversham Film Society.
