Gemma has physical and mental disabilities, which mean that she has a general overall interest in disability. Gemma is also a parent/carer for 2 disabled young people, who have dyspraxia, severe speech and language difficulties (son), learning disability and asthma (daughter). As a result of this, she has been campaigning on disability issues since 1992. Gemma is on the Surrey Access Forum, secretary of the Reigate and Banstead Access Group. Due to her recent experience of her caring role for her father, she has some knowledge of elderly people and their health problems. Her father was very deaf, had severe arthritis, curvature of the spine and was diagnosed for dementia late in his life.
