Laura Ferguson

My experience in the world of social care over the last 30 plus years ranges from delivering and managing social care services in both the public and private sector. I have worked across the social care pathway from care management to delivery, design and commissioning of services, with a key focus upon adults with learning disabilities and autistic people, as well as unpaid carers. I am a practicing Independent Fostering Panel chair and active in local Partnership Boards. 

As a parent of a neurodiverse young adult and a previous foster carer, I am able to view the sector through a number of lenses which help inform my practice.

A large feature of my work to date has been informed through co production, and it is something I feel passionately about and it is embedded into my practice.
