Over the past 19 years, Tim has completed more than 150,000 pieces of casework for local people – whether that’s securing a roof over the head for a family in desperate housing need, or getting critical mental health treatment for someone’s child.

Tim lives in Milnthorpe, south Cumbria, with his wife Rosie, his daughters Isabella and Gracie and his sons Jude and Laurie. In his limited spare time, Tim enjoys following the (mis)fortunes of Blackburn Rovers, playing football, fell running, walking in the Lake District, listening to various kinds of music and spending time with family and friends.

He became an MP for Westmorland and Lonsdale in 2005 ending a 95 year rule by the Tories, winning by 267 votes. He was Liberal Democrat party leader 2015-2017.
