Laura has a background in youth work, particularly in countries emerging from conflict. She joined NICCY in 2009 as a Participation Officer and was drawn to the job based on the NICCY youth panel’s important advisory role in supporting the work of the organisation. She works with children and young people to develop their understanding of the UNCRC and how they can become child rights defenders. Laura also develops workshops and training materials for educators working with children and young people and supports development of children and young peoples versions of NICCY publications.
Outside work Laura enjoys rowing and sea swimming and spending time with her husband and son.
