Alex Laidler

Health Visitor

My name is Alex Laidler, I am a trustee for Jolly Josh. I was Josh’s Health Visitor and was honoured to be asked to be a trustee for the charity. Josh has a special place in my heart along with his beautiful family. My background is as a Children’s Nurse working in Neurosurgery and then as a Staff Nurse within the health visiting teams in various team in the Manchester area, 13 years ago I decided to do my health visitor training and have never looked back. I have a passion for supporting families and their children to ensure that they achieve their full potential whatever that maybe. I have always enjoyed talking with families. I think that this is so important for our Jolly Josh families to know that there is always someone available with a listening ear. I attend the Jolly Josh stay and play sessions once a month and I have to say it’s the best part of my month!  There are so many amazing families that attend, I love children, I love to assist their play and interact with them, lets just say when I’m at Jolly Josh I am in my element.
