With a career spanning over 30 years in education, public, private, community and health sector roles, Neil has a broad knowledge of issues affecting everyday households, businesses and communities. Working in the energy services sector and volunteering for his local community trust, he is passionate about helping make a difference to people struggling to heat and power their homes and businesses.

“If I were fortunate enough to be elected for Fauldhouse and the Breich Valley, I would focus on supporting young people into green jobs, training and work placements, whilst helping those with barriers to employment too.”Neil Barnes
