Vera Baird on a walkabout in Houghton as Police & Crime Commissioner for Northumbria, 14.05.14

Vera Baird in Houghton, May 2014.

Welcome to my personal website, I am delighted that you have taken time to look through the different areas.

This website is separate to my role as Police & Crime Commissioner for Northumbria, if you are looking for that website here is the link   As we head towards the Police & Crime Commissioner election, I will continue to upload my thoughts about what is happening in Parliament or responding to events that are making the press.  I also focus on some of my interests, particularly in tackling Violence Against Women and Girls.

I work with Government Ministers and Shadow Ministers to ensure the best deal possible for Northumbria Police.

I have also added a number of links which I find interesting, including Respect, of which I am a board member.  Please do take a few minutes to look at the work they are all doing – I’m sure you’ll find it of interest.

If you would like to contact me, my email address is  I’m also on Twitter @verabaird or @northumbriapcc

Best wishes.
