“Living with and caring for adults and children with varying disabilities and “Special Needs” inspired me to become Councillor to raise awareness of, and improve facilities for, others in our Community with the same needs”.

Laura has lived in the Cannock area since 1989 and lived in Hednesford itself since 2006.  Since 2007 Laura and her husband have run a local tree surgery firm and, since the birth of their children in 2008, 2009 and 2018, has been a full-time Mum.  Their eldest child is diagnosed with Autism and ADHD, their middle child is also diagnosed as Autistic, as is her husband himself.  Her husband is also partially deaf.  Being aware of the challenges that living with and caring for people with additional needs, as well as the difficulties of getting conditions diagnosed, has made her very passionate about helping others going through the same things.

Laura, along with her Mom and her eldest daughter, is also part of The Friends of Hednesford Park.  Laura has also studied and qualified to Level 2 in British Sign Language.
