About Me

My name is Clive Efford and I am proud to be the Labour candidate for Eltham and Chislehurst. I was first elected to represent Eltham in 1997 and was the MP until the general election was called in May 2024. I raised my family in Eltham and served as a Councillor for the Eltham Well Hall Ward in 1986 until I became the MP. Before I came into politics I held a number of jobs, including working as a youth worker, owning my own business and operating as a licensed black cab driver.

I have worked tirelessly to make things better for those living in Eltham and Chislehurst. I have worked with local residents on campaigns relating to everything from transport to healthcare. I led the campaign to introduce the 132 bus route from Eltham Station to North Greenwich and then to increase its capacity when it was more popular than Transport for London predicted. I have also worked with residents on the Horn Park estate to introduce the B15 bus and to reopen The Source medical centre following its closure due to cuts.

Between 2010 and 2016, I served as the Shadow Minister for Sport, holding the government to account on issues relating to sport within the UK. I pushed the government to do better on a range of issues, including football governance in England, high street gambling and fan safety at sporting events.

Locally, I serve as a governor at a school as well as a trustee at Samuel Montagu Youth Centre. I have worked with many resident associations and charities across Eltham on issues that are important to them. I am always happy to assist groups in my constituency looking to improve things for all of us.

It has been the honour of my life to serve as the MP for the community where I raised my family. I am looking forward to campaigning as the Labour Candidate for Eltham and Chislehurst, I would be grateful for your support.
