Drew Heffernan is the candidate for Old Bexley & Sidcup.
Drew has worked in Special Needs for seven years at an ‘Outstanding’ rated school in West London, playing a key role as an autism specialist Learning Support Officer. Drew was also a governor at a North London primary school for several years and has seen first-hand the benefits of the Pupil Premium, a policy enacted by the Lib Dems in coalition.
Prior to that he studied Human Sciences at University College, London, the first in his family to attend University. Since moving to Bexley borough Drew has actively campaigned on behalf of local people. He co-founded the environmental campaign Divest Bexley which raises awareness of the risks to pensioners posed by Bexley Council’s investments in fossil fuels. The campaign now also raises awareness about the risks of flooding to Bexley homes and residents.
Drew has loved living in Bexley since he moved here in 2015, and is keen that it retains the green spaces, vibrant local economy and friendly people that makes it such a unique place to live.
