We at Napo are shocked and horrified at the terrible news that Jo Cox MP has passed away following a brutal and most heinous attack in her constituency on 16 June. No words can truly express the horror and sadness that is felt around the country by all that knew Jo and those that did not. She was a fierce campaigner for justice and for women’s rights. She spoke eloquently and passionately on behalf of Napo in a number of debates raising concerns about probation reform and the impact this was having on staff, service users and communities. She campaigned against hatred and fought tirelessly for justice and unity. She will be sorely missed, a light extinguished far too early. The country has lost a great politician, a great campaigner and a great role model. Her family have lost a mother, a wife and a daughter who cannot be replaced. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family at this most terrible time but we hope that one day her children will understand what a truly inspirational women Jo was.
