Stephen Morgan is the Member of Parliament (MP) for Portsmouth South, a seat he took with a 21.5% swing – one of the largest in the country – in the 2017 General Election.

Stephen, who was born and bred in the city he serves, studied at local schools and was the first in his family to go to university, graduating from the University of Bristol with an BSc (Hons) in 2002 and a postgraduate Masters of the Arts (MA) from London in 2003.

He started his working life in local government working across the Chief Executive’s Office, strategy, democratic, and community involvement sections at Portsmouth City Council and from 2008-2015 was Head of Community Engagement at the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea where he oversaw a £3m investment programme in communities.

He has been Chief Executive of a medium-sized charity delivering infrastructure and volunteering support for the not-for-profit sector and delivering services including a centre for rough sleepers and targeted support for carers and young people.

In civic life he has been the chair of governors at Arundel Court Junior School, a trustee of Age UK Portsmouth and vice-chair of governors at Priory School. He is a longstanding community activist with a wide range of knowledge and understanding of local issues and needs. His interest in culture and regeneration led him to be the chair of the Portsmouth Cultural Consortium for many years.

In May 2016 he was elected onto Portsmouth City Council representing Charles Dickens ward and within five months elected the Labour Group Leader.

Before becoming an MP he was a Chief Executive of a medium-sized charity in Hampshire delivering infrastructure and volunteering support for the not-for-profit sector and delivering services including a centre for rough sleepers and targeted support for carers and young people.

He is Private Parliamentary Secretary for the Shadow Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, and sits on the Public Accounts Committee, the oldest select committee in Parliament, focusing on defence.

He has a keen interest in improving public services, promoting educational opportunities for all, and supporting our armed forces.
