Meet Jen

I’m Jen Cummins, the Social Democrats Local Election Candidate for Dublin South West Inner City.

I have lived in the Liberties for more than 20 years with my husband and four children. I have spent all of my career working with young at-risk people and their families, supporting them to reach their potential.

I was on the Board of Educate Together for 8 years, the last 5 as Chairperson, and have sat on many boards of management, as well as company and charity boards. I lecture in Ethical Education at DCU and am currently completing my Doctorate of Education.

I am passionate about all areas of education and have spent much of my life working for an education system that is inclusive and accessible to children and young people, and appropriate to their needs.

I want to see free education from early childhood education all the way through to third level.

I joined the Social Democrats to work for a society that is equitable and fair, through the development of communities.

Jen’s Priorities

  • Investment in public services and amenities, including community centres and play areas.
  • Real choice for parents in education, and a system which is inclusive.
  • Proper funding to support our young people, particularly in the area of mental health.
  • Free and accessible healthcare and education; the norm in social democratic countries.
  • Free high quality childcare and after school provision.
  • Psychological support services provided in a timely manner and available nationwide.
  • Investment in sports and leisure for all.
