Laura Abbott

Pronouns: She/ Her

I work to support the staff team to manage our Sheffield based projects and support with the running of the organisation. I also deliver Mental Health First Aid and Suicide Prevention training to those working with young people and communities with an interest in mental health. I have a BA in Modern Foreign Languages, an MA in International Development and a Level 4 PTTLS teaching qualification. I am also a certified Mental Health First Aid Instructor, ASIST and SafeTALK trainer.

I’ve worked for Chilypep for over 10 years and absolutely love everything about Chilypep and the young people we work with and enjoy the difference that every day brings! I am particularly passionate about speaking up around social justice issues and campaigning to make meaningful change for young people!

I love being outdoors, nature, trees, travelling, music, dancing, festivals, animals, people, faeries and dreaming.
