Councillor Peter Griffiths
All about me
I started work as a youth and community worker before training to be a Community Social Worker in South Birmingham. Later becoming a Team Manager and then, Assistant Divisional Manger, for Disability Services in Sandwell. In 2002, I worked as a Professional Assistant to Estelle Morris, Education and Culture Minister until her retirement in 2005. Since then I have worked as a training consultant and adviser in Community Social Care.
I am a Life member of GMB Trade Union and a former International athlete who represented Great Britain in the 3000m Steeplechase event outdoors and 3000m indoors.
I am particularly interested in developing coherent local community services which provide training and employment opportunities for local residents including young people. An integrated approach to health and social care including employment, housing, leisure and sport will bring the greatest rewards in these time of financial restraint.

How to Contact Me
You can visit me at the advice surgeries below or contact me by telephone or email.
Advice surgeries are where you are able to visit your local Councillor for your Ward, with any issues or concerns that you have, please check who your local Councillor is before attending the advice surgery.
Councillors will always try to attend their advice surgeries; however there may be times, when an advice surgery has to be cancelled or changed at short notice. There is no legal requirement for Councillors to keep the advice surgery open for the full time.
Please note that due to the Coronavirus situation my advice surgeries are cancelled until further notice. You can contact me by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
