I am currently a parent at Corbets Tey School with a child who is 10 years old who has attended Corbets since he was 4.
I regularly help the PTA every year with their fundraising events on site at the school as well as previously organising my own fundraising event for the CTS Avelon 16+ provision.
I have worked with the public and vulnerable families for many years now working for The Member of Parliament for Dagenham and Rainham.
I previously volunteered at a local charity dedicated to helping children with disabilities as well as campaigning regularly for The National Autistic Society and making appearances as part of their family media team.
I am also a blogger for Family Fund Charity which provides support to disabled families.
I bring to the board the view of a parent who has a child at the school.
