Helena Croft

Conservative candidate for Sydenham ward

Helena lives in Lewisham with her husband and they have two grown-up daughters. She has lived in Lewisham since 2016.

Helena is the Executive Director and founder of a charity which supports vulnerable women across London and the South East,  such as victims of sexual abuse and human trafficking. Prior to moving to Lewisham Helena lived in Sussex where she was a district councillor, serving as the council’s cabinet member for communications and town centre, as well as being Deputy Leader of the council.  

Helena has a proven record as a local campaigner and after moving to Lewisham led a successful campaign for public realm improvements on her street. Further to this Helena has helped manage town centre regeneration and initiatives to support local shops and traders in her previous cabinet role – Helena wants to use this experience to benefit Sydenham high street.

Helena said

Lewisham desperately needs an opposition, someone to challenge the complacency in the town hall. I have experience as a former cabinet member and Deputy Council Leader, combined with leading a charity and other organisations I know the questions that need asking and how to get a better deal for Sydenham residents”.
