Isobel Craddock (1/2)
Isobel's background is in vocational education management in FE colleges. Her career has been centered around supporting, teaching and working with people of all ages to get a foothold into the world of work. She has a special interest in hidden disabilities, as her child has Attention Deficit Disorder and Autism, and has had to fight the system in order to keep his mainstream education on track. Now retired, she does voluntary work ranging from being a school governor, advocate and trustee, to working with environmental groups, befriending services and homeless shelters. She says, "I joined the Labour party in 2016 because of the values I hold dear. I feel with the current Government, profit is put before people, consumerism above humanity and environment. The Labour Party manifesto inspired me to join up as social justice was at the heart of it. Joining the party has meant making new friends and meeting like-minded people, people who care about the future for their children and who care about Wycombe and the closure of services and shops. Best thing for me, apart from meeting other members is the social walks, quiz nights and annual conference."
