Daniel has worked with Cambridge campaigners on a series of high-profile issues in the city. He is a leading voice against privatisation of local health services. He is campaigning to make Cambridge a Living Wage City. He took the LifeWorks campaigners to Westminster as part of their successful campaign to save their vital local service.

Outside politics Daniel is a keen sportsman, he enjoys cycling and walking and was a promising middle-distance runner in his youth.
