Lara is the CEO and Founder of the Snowdrop Project. Lara left her home town, Skipton, to come to Sheffield for a BA in Psychology and Sociology and then went on to complete an MA in Social Work. She worked for Doncaster Social Services and CAMHS before working for an NRM safe house in Sheffield. As a result of seeing the need for further support, Lara started the Snowdrop Project. She is a guest lecturer at Sheffield Hallam and Sheffield University and co-authored the report, ‘Life Beyond the Safe House’ (2015) for the Human Trafficking Foundation. Her most adventurous experiences through work were in Turkmenistan, presenting to the government, conducting social research in Libya and giving evidence to the Home Affairs Select Committee. It has been her delight over the last few years to grow Snowdrop to where it is today and work with some of the most dedicated, passionate and caring people she has ever met. In her free time, she can be found treading the boards in local theatres, playing netball or chilling out with good friends and her cat Stanley.
