Roberta is the Secretariat for the APPG for Disability. Roberta’s central role in coordinating cross-party efforts for various causes has benefitted MPs and Peers across Parliament. From making the House more accessible to disabled people and women, to coordinating the largest equalities based open letter to the Prime Minister, Roberta’s commitments have elevated the profile of disability in Parliament as well as across other sectors. Responsible for introducing mentoring onto the agenda for parliamentarians, Roberta successfully signed up over 100 MPs for National Mentoring Week, enabling over 100 young people from underrepresented backgrounds to receive an invaluable mentoring experience in the hopes of encouraging them into politics.
