Who we are
Landlark is based in Cambridge, but our community is far reaching and extensive. We're a collective of family, friends, networks and contacts with the will to support survivors, root out abuse and bring about change.
Founder (& Trustee)
Alongside a successful career as a researcher and communicator for politicians, government agencies and more, Beth always felt driven to give time, energy and passion to social causes. From helping to settle young Syrians following the civil war, to helping to house people living on the streets during the Covid-19 pandemic, to training to be a Community Ambassador for Cambridge Women's Aid's Ask Me project, Beth found volunteering increasingly more rewarding than the day job.
Inspired by the people she met and what she learned, both volunteering and studying for a Masters in International Social Policy & Social Welfare, in 2021, Beth took the leap to set up her own initiative – Landlark - dedicated to a cause which has shaped her life, namely, ensuring no one has to endure domestic abuse, sexual violence or harassment.
Beth's loves include; her tribe, lifting weights, and every day meeting new people as dedicated to Landlark's mission as she is.
The trusty trustees
A proud Northener, Laura's lived and breathed communications since leaving 'up north' with a PR degree and heading 'down south' to take on jobs in the charity, government and education sectors. Twenty years later and now based in Cambridge, having picked up a Masters in Development along the way; life, work and study have driven a passion for calling out inequalities and abusers in all their forms. Laura brings her love of a plan, and experience in communications, to help spread the word, change the narrative and help Landlark soar.
Nicky was, up until May 2021, an executive Councillor of Cambridge City Council, with a portfolio of Community Safety and Transport. A Survivor of domestic abuse herself, she worked with women's services across the region to highlight their cause and the need for systematic change in the way domestic abuse is viewed. Nicky also ran for Police and Crime Commissioner, campaigning for all businesses to have a domestic abuse policy, and for education in schools to highlight the abuse that is street harassment.
(Dr) George is our numbers man. As Treasurer, he keeps track of the pennies. It's a task he's more than up to, with a Masters in Mathematics and PhD in Number Theory from Oxford. As proud Dad to two inquisitive, confident and energetic young kids, George staunchly supports Landlark's vision to work at the grass roots, empowering young people to respect and protect one another and encouraging the positive behaviour that can shape a kinder society. George enjoys playing with stats, even in his downtime, and chills out playing the cello.
