A community campaigner and former charity worker, Lara Norris is the Labour Parliamentary Candidate for Great Yarmouth at the election in 2015.
20 years ago, Lara left her home with her two children to join a women's refuge and found that opportunities weren't open for working class people like her.
After a Labour government took office in 1997 she had the chance to go to University, working part time and raising two children as a lone parent. After leaving University she joined home-start, a charity which supports parents with children under 5.
Since being selected as Labour's candidate two years ago, Lara has campaigned tirelessly on behalf of her local community. Have a look at the video below or her twitter @Lara_Norris to find out more about her.
