Like many Londoners, Meera Chadha moved to London to start her career, having grown up in Cardiff, South Wales.
Meera has lived all over London and she settled in Waltham Forest in 2018 with her husband to raise her family. She has two young children.
Meera is passionate about addressing social inequality, fighting climate change and improving education outcomes for young people and adults alike. She has worked and volunteered in the charity sector since 2012 and is currently Director of Operations for charity working to get more people into teaching.
She has previously served as a school governor in South London, is an experienced mentor and has been a trustee and Chair of several education charities. Meera has witnessed first hand the damaging effect that education cuts have had to schools and youth services, limiting the opportunities of many young people. She decided that she needed to make a stand and stood as the Liberal Democrat candidate for Walthamstow in the 2019 General Election, doubling the Liberal Democrat vote share from 2017.
Meera is passionate about making London great for current residents and the next generation. She was immensely proud to be one of 70,000 volunteer Gamesmakers in the London 2012 Olympics. She has been actively fighting expansion of London City Airport and is supporting residents across Waltham Forest to make sure their voices are heard.
